Tot Shabbat
Oct 7 @ 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.
