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.

Join other Young Families for a playground playdate and Shabbat Picnic dinner on the Agudas Achim playground. We'll welcome in Shabbat with some grape juice and challah and enjoy our own picnic dinners (please remember: no meat, poultry, or shellfish). Morah Jen will serve up some frozen treats for dessert.    This event is weather-dependent.
