Prayer and Play

Families with children 6 and under are invited to join Rabbi Sobo at her home for our usual line-up of programming for our tots. All Prayer & Play events are facilitated by Rabbi Sobo and are perfect for not-yet-school-aged children and their families. The goal is to build community in a come-as-you-are, friendly environment. All events include a little prayer, a lot of fun and laughter, and a wonderful community of families with young children! RSVPs for all events are strongly encouraged, but not required, to the office or Rabbi Sobo.
