Virtual Shabbat for Families

Rabbi Andrea will host a Shabbat gathering for families on Zoom this Friday, May 1, at 5:30 PM. 

Calling all families to Zoom in for shabbat candlelighting, blessings, simple songs and words of appreciation and torah. Have your candles, grape juice and hallah ready to go. We'll send a sheet with the words of the home rituals for all who register. Register at rabbi (at) templeisraelgreenfield to be invited. We'll invite your families just before 5:30.

Would you like to volunteer to lead the blessings on the candles or hallah? We'd love to have a lot of participation.

Maybe engage your children in making a special shabbat dish, such as sweet noodle kugel!

Supported in part by a grant from the Harold Grinspoon Foundation.
