Family Havdallah

Family Havdallah

Need plans for your little ones on Saturday night?
Join our warm community for fun and singing.

If it is ice-skating at Cedarvale Park, having a toddler-age 8 drumming circle, listening to a concert with a children’s entertainer or playing ball-games, we are happy to spend Saturday night together.

Smell the spices, taste the wine, and let some of the sweetness of Shabbat and the joy of being together with your family fortify you for the week to come.

If you have a specific idea or request for a Family Havdallah program, please be in touch with Rabbi Jordan Helfman.
