Introducing the youngest members of our community to the joy of Shabbat through story-telling and music.
Beloved by Children and Grownups
Tot Shabbat and Tot Havdallah at Temple Emanu-El are family friendly celebrations designed for children aged 1 through 6 year-olds, and the big people who love them. We use puppets, costumes, musical instruments, and creative movement to get the whole family in the spirit of Shabbat. Each celebration includes social time to connect families to one another and the greater synagogue community.
We offer hands-on activities for the children and a delicious nosh both adult and child friendly.
Led by Rabbis and Teachers
Tot Shabbat is led by Temple Emanu-El Rabbi Spike Anderson, Rabbi Max Miller, Rabbi Rachael Miller, and Schiff Preschool of Temple Emanu-El’s beloved song leader, Amy Peskin. Services are musical, magical, and totally interactive.
The Rabbis and Ms. Amy are joined by Schiff Preschool Director, Sheila Purdin, and Diamond Family Religious School Principal, Beth Blick, making the worship experience truly collaborative, full of familiar faces, new and old friends, and one your family will look forward to month after month.
