Tot Shabbat @ Sanctuary
Mar 4 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am

Nothing is more heartwarming than the sight of the youngest members of our community running to the Sanctuary for Shabbat!  Tot Shabbat affords our children and their families the time and space to Torah Talk (1)truly experience the joys of Shabbat led by clergy.  Songs, stories, plenty of active participation and an Ark overflowing with plush stuffed Torahs for the children to dance with.  What could be better?  Well, maybe the Oneg!

Then we join Cindi Drake, Director of Early Childhood Education, as she guides the children through some really fun activities.

Questions?  Contact Cindi Drake at Cindi@nvhcreston.org or phone (703) 435-8829.

Torah Talk @ Sanctuary
Mar 11 @ 9:00 am – 10:15 am

The Torah is a vast collection of stories, commandments, ritual practices, and ethical standards. It is meant to be studied and understood not only to connect us to our ancestors and traditions, but to guide us toward an ethical and spiritual life. Torah means learning. For many of us, understanding Torah is not easy. We may find the language confusing and the meaning difficult to grasp. Yet when we learn together, we are thrilled by the insights we glean and share. Update your calendar now and join us. Participants are encouraged to voice their thoughts, insights and interpretations. Dress is casual. Previous Torah study or Hebrew fluency is not required. Questions or for more information, contact Susan Trivers, Worship Committee Chair at worship@nvhcreston.org.
