Friday Night Lights - An Island in Time

Friday, February 19, 6:00

 

A Shabbat program for children 6 and under and their families.  Featuring our special FNL scavenger hunt, Shabbat blessings, singing, and dancing, child-friendly light dinner, and time for children to learn and play while parents have a Shabbat rest.  This program is free and open to all, but please let us know you're coming so we can plan appropriately.

 

Two Ongoing Learning Opportunities

Both opportunities are free and open to all.  No need to RSVP - just drop in.

 
Jewish Chants/Niggunim
Monday nights, 7:30
 
Join us once a month as we blend our voices to experience the spirituality of sacred song. Some of the melodies may be familiar to you, some may be new, all will be easy to learn. We will spend enough time on each one to allow spaciousness and contemplation.

קהילת "עץ חיים" הינה מקום מיוחד במינו. בית חם, פתוח ומקבל אשר אינו משתייך לזרם דתי כלשהו ומורכב מחילונים, מסורתיים, רפורמים וקונסרבטיבים, משפחות יהודיות ומעורבות, ישראלים ומקומיים המנהלים ביחד חיי קהילה יהודית עשירים.

 

If you are looking for a place of worship, we invite you to visit.
