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 programs are now outdoors and in person. Some programs require registration. Masks must be worn and physical distancing will be observed. In case of inclement weather, some  outdoor programs will be canceled; Gan Shabbat will move indoors; some events will be rescheduled.
 
Shabbat Picnic Dinner 
This program will resume in the fall.
   We'll gather together in the amphitheater/field, sing songs and blessings, and enjoy a picnic dinner. Bring your picnic (dairy or parve) and a chair or blanket to sit on.
   All are welcome to play on the playground or join the main service (indoors) following the Young Families program.
