Intergenerational Programming

Building relationships at Mishkan Ha’am

Would you like to get to know MH’ers of different generations better? This year we hope to do just that with a new initiative to bring people of different ages together in small groups in members’ homes. First up is a program leading into Simchat Torah. We will match up members in groups of 2-3 member families/individuals. The groups will then arrange a mutually convenient time before Simchat Torah (10/21/19) to meet at one of the member’s homes for a few hours to work on a fun Torah-themed project together. We will provide the groups with a few choices of projects and the group will choose the one that they find most interesting. Then, when we gather as a community on Simchat Torah, the groups will share their projects with everyone. To sign up or for more information, please contact Susan​.​

Shabbatapalootza: Kids & Family Program

Shabbatapalooza is Mishkan Ha’am’s Shabbat program for 1.5 years-old to 5 years-old toddlers and their grownups. 

We build community through laughter: We start with several Shabbat songs.  Then we move on to tables with different activities, including the arts and craft table, Shabbat and Jewish holiday themed toys, Shabbat and Jewish holiday themed board books, sensory activities (such as slime or ooblek), building activities (such as Duplo or Geo Block centers), and more.  We end our time together with an awesome Bubble Dance Party!
