Shakin' Shabbat

Come join us and Rabbi Barbara Penzner to joyfully celebrate Shabbat with singing, dancing, stories, and sharing hugs with the Torah and someone you love! We warmly invite families with children ages 0-6 (older siblings are welcome) to attend our Shakin' (tot) Shabbat family program, followed by dinner and play time. Dress is casual, and don't worry if your child won't sit still-- little ones are free to be kids, and crawl and jump as needed. So put on your dancing shoes and head to HBT!

(*followed by Community Dinner & Kabbalat Shabbat)

* Families with young children, ages 6 and under: $38

Bagels and Tanach Study Group

For several years now a group of us have been gathering together to read and discuss the books of the Bible aside from The Five Books of Moses that constitute the Torah. The informal sessions have mostly been held at my home over brunch on Sunday mornings from 11am to 1pm. At the close of last year we decided to start with the Book of Esther and then go to Chronicles. If you are interested in joining us you are most welcome.

Our sessions are held at members' homes and are accompanied with brunch. Newcomers and drop-ins are always welcome.

For more information you can call Merle at: 617-879-0491 or email her at mwolofsky@yahoo.com.
