Join us for our Young Families Shabbat Experience!

   We know that all families have different rhythms and routines, so we wanted to offer you several different ways to celebrate Shabbat with your friends at Agudas Achim. As always, ALL families are welcome, regardless of synagogue membership or affiliation.
   All virtual programs will last about 30 minutes. To receive the links, please register in advance.
Saturday, April 24 | 4 PM
   Invite your grandparents and cousins to join us for what will probably be our last virtual event of the year. We'll read stories about bubbes and zaydes, sing some songs, and share a teatime snack. Bring juice or tea, cookies or muffins -- fancy cups and plates optional! Then, families will meet up in breakout rooms for some special family time together. We hope you'll join us!
