All are welcome to join our weekly musical Shabbat celebration for young children and families, led by Penny White. Children not enrolled in JCC children’s programs must be accompanied by an adult. Schedule can sometimes change, so please call 253-0701 to confirm prior to attending.

You can also find a copy of Penny White’s award-winning CD Shabbat Shindig at the front desk at the JCC. Shabbat Shindig  recently won The Parent’s Choice Foundation award! The Parent’s Choice Foundation chooses recipients based on multiple criteria including developmentally appropriate content, the product’s design and function, the educational value, long-term play value, and the benefits to a child’s social and emotional growth and well-being.

All proceeds from the sale of Shabbat Shindig with Penny go to the scholarship fund for the JCC’s Shalom Children’s Center.

JCC: Welcome Shabbat for Seniors at The Crossings at Reynolds Mtn
Jun 2 @ 3:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Come join JCC Music Specialist Penny White as we welcome Shabbat with the elders of our community. We provide the juice, blessings, and challah – you provide the smiles and ruach (spirit in Hebrew).

Everyone is welcome to sign up for this heart-warming service with us, and we love the adults who have helped make this program special; but we’d also like to encourage families, children, and young adults to sign up to join us as seeing young people is such a special joy for our elders.
