For Young Families

Each month on the first Shabbat of the calendar month, join our BIJ family and our friends from B’nai Emunah for Shabbat Shelanu, a special Friday evening celebration that begins at 5:45pm with a Tot Shabbat program (music, dance, prayers and stories) for pre-readers and their families. Tot Shabbat is followed at 6:30pm by a free communal Shabbat dinner (catered main dish with potluck sides). After dinner, at 7:30pm join us for a family-friendly service and oneg, with special presentations by our school-age children.  Services are led by Rabbis Danny Gottlieb and Mark Melamut, with music led by Ricki Weintraub. Service location alternates between BIJ and B’nai Emunah (46th and Taraval). Check the front page of the website for this month’s location.
