Mondays 9:15 a.m. - 10:30 a.m.
November 5, 19, 26; December 3, 10, 17

    Tinok Time ("tinok" means baby in Hebrew) is a program designed for children younger than two years old and their caregivers. We will introduce the children to the preschool experience in a fun and nurturing way by participating in free play, storytelling, music and movement, and art. The children will also have fun engaging with Jewish practice and themes. We will start each session with havdalah, the ceremony for beginning the week that engages all of the senses. We will also focus our activities each session on a different day of creation. The first session will run for 6 weeks. All are welcome to attend.
