1st Fridays with Jen Miriam
Puppetry is a powerful tool for entertaining and educating and puppets take children and adults into a magical realm of wonder and joy. Join Jen Miriam Altman, Alon Altman, Raizel the Camel and Raizel’s puppet friends for a half-hour Shabbat service geared towards tots. The service includes candle-lighting; singalongs with guitar, drums, and other instruments; puppets; dancing with scarves; and ends with kiddush and ha’motzi. This is a great way to introduce young children to Shabbat!
