Shabbat b'Yachad at 5:30pm

Shabbat b'Yachad is proof that no one’s too young—or too old—to be an active participant in life at Woodlands. One Friday a month, during most months, the 30-minute service is geared youngsters age 0-7 with a caregiver. It’s a wonderful way for them to share a delightful experience with their parents and grandparents. (Of course, other relatives and friends are welcome to tag along.)

What is Shabbat b'Yachad? Simply put, it’s a raucous, rambunctious, noisy half-hour of prayerful fun with Rabbi Mara, Cantor Jenna, and friends. Your kids can’t stay in their seats? No problem. It’s all in keeping with the singing, jokes, story-telling, and blessings that leave everyone filled with Shabbat spirit and wearing a big grin.

Shabbat b'Yachad is a delightful entry point, both for children who are first discovering prayer and congregational worship, and for parents who have been distanced from it. It’s an open door for all to step into the ritual life of the congregation in a way that is immediately engaging and satisfying. And, for interfaith families, it can be an excellent introduction to Judaism and Jewish life.

Grandparents:  If you have little ones living in (or visiting!) the Westchester area and you'd like to kvell at their loving being in temple, invite them to join you for Shabbat b'Yachad. They'll love it, which means you will too!
