Chanukah is in the air!! 175 eager children and adults came to the annual Menorah Workshop at Home Depot. Familiar faces, as well as many new ones, learned about Chanukah and how each and everyone of us can be modern day Maccabees! The smiles on the children's faces says it all!
We had so much fun gearing up for Purim with a packed house gathering together to make and bake delicious Hamantahsehn. The children learned all about the Happy Holiday of Purim and it's relevant meaning. Each family baked their own dough, shaped their own Hamantashen and filled them with 10 different flavor fillings!!
What an awesome way to get in to the High Holiday spirit! Over 50 people joined in learning about Rosh Hashana thru a Tashlich toss, a special bee keeper presentation, and a variety of fun booths, run by a group of dedicated volunteers! Thank you Amit Kadoch, Michelle Frid, Alex Sheron for you help! Shana Tova - May this year be one filled with Jewish memories and learning!
Here's what one father had to say about his experience at the Family Shabbat. The next one is Friday, December 15. We would love to have your family join! "Family Shabbat was a perfect opportunity to meet other Jewish parents in the community and has already resulted in new friends. The music, the baking, and the kid-centric Torah portion all culminated in a great time for my family". - Jonathan K
Woah! 150 children brought the Chanukah spirit and the strength of the Maccabees to Marin this morning! The joyous energy of this event, with children and grandparents building their very own Menorah was truly a sight to enjoy!
Over 65 people attended Novato's first ever Shofar Factory! Children and adults learned all about the process of making a shofar, and got to sand, saw, drill, and shellac their very own shofar to take home. Happy blowing!
Shakes in the Sukkah '14
Doing the Lulav shake while enjoying milkshakes was the talk of town. Building edible Sukkah's, designing beaded star of David's as the Sukkah decoration and enjoying Sukkot activities was the highlight of the holiday! Having already enjoyed 2 family holiday events (the first was the Shofar Factory), excitement is growing for the big one on Dec 14 as we will be in Home Depot building our very own wooden Menorah's! See you there!
250+ people participated in a fun Menorah Building Workshop at Home Depot!! 153 children received a Home Depot apron and got to work hammering, gluing and painting their beautifully hand-crafted Menorahs. The heroes in the story of Chanukah were the Maccabees-which means hammer. The children building their Menorah's yesterday did lots of hammering To me it was the sound of music! The hammering of the Macabees represents the strength of the Jewish people during the time of Chanukah, standing strong for our Judaism. This hammering and strength was in full force yesterday. Am Yisroel Chai! See you this Wednesday, outside of Whole Foods Novato, for the Grand Menorah lighting and Olive Oil Press
A beautiful crowed gatherd before Purim to learn about the joyous holiday. We discussed practical lessons we can take from the Purim story and even got to see the inside of the Megillah scroll! We made all sorts of delicious Hamantashen to take home and share with family and friends! Looking forward to the next pre holiday event, as we learn about Passover and make our very own Matzah.
A beautiful day learning about Passover and how to make Shmurah Matzah from the wheat stalk to the baked Matzah. Check out the article in the Marin IJ http://www.marinij.com/general-news/20150329/in-novato-children-get-an-introduction-to-matzo-with-a-dash-of-history
