Shakin' Shabbat at HBT

Friday evenings 5:45 pm–6:15 pm

Calendar below

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!

Led by Rabbi Barbara Penzner, this short, fun service is accessible, free, and followed by either a pizza dinner or an HBT *Community Dinner.
