Ukulele Shabbat for Families
Thanks for a fantastic school year of welcoming Shabbat together! Ukulele Shabbat will return again in September. Until then, we hope you'll join us this summer for Songs and Stories with PJ Library in Ft. Tryon Park.
"Hey-ya, Shabbat Shalom, Shabbat Shalom to... everyone!"
In the Y's fun twist on Tot Shabbat, we gather weekly to sing, tell stories, light "candles" and enjoy challah together with our Y Beginnings community. Yes, with live ukulele music, from the Y's own Rabbi Ezra Weinberg, and joined by Todah, our amazing Sloth (you have to meet Todah!). And come meet each other, too... we're here for all families in the neighborhood.
"Wait, what's that sound I hear... choo, choo!" Train coming through!
"Hinei rakevet, she’mistovevet / Al galgalim, al galgalim, al galgalim / Toot toot!"
What did you say? Oh, it's Hebrew for "here comes the train, going around and around on its wheels." Yes, the "1" and only "A" train. Yes, we also sing in English and Spanish.
Families of all backgrounds are warmly welcomed at Ukulele Shabbat, which is designed for babies through age three, with their parent or caregiver. And if you have grandparents or other family visiting, or older siblings home on school vacation, they're welcome to join us, too!
