FAMILY PROGRAMS

The Edlavitch DCJCC FAMILY PROGRAMS are designed with your family in mind. We merge high quality experiential activities with an informal camp-like atmosphere. Dedicated to serving and supporting our diverse community, we create safe space to explore Jewish values amidst the messy, joyful chaos that is raising kids in an urban environment in the modern world. Organized around the Jewish calendar and Shabbat we offer: monthly celebrations, pool parties, carnivals, story time and other kid friendly activities for children aged 2-8. All families are welcome—you don't have to be Jewish to find a home at the EDCJCC.

SHABBAT
Saturday, November 18, 5:00 - 6:30 PM
CITY JEWS POPUP: HAVDALAH
Explore the stars and our universe with a special planetarium show, the Havdalah ceremony, treats and crafts! The traditional Havadalah ceremony marks the end of Shabbat and can only happen when there are three stars visible in the sky.
Brought to you by PJ Library, the Edlavitch DCJCC, Federation’s Jewish Food Experience®, and Love and Religion interfaith programs.
