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 and toddlers, with their parent or caregiver. In our virtual format, it's easy for grandparents to Zoom in, too! 

Ukulele Shabbat is free for all families, on a drop-in basis, no RSVP required.
