Jewish Cultural Activities

Keshet celebrates all the Jewish holidays with age-appropriate activities, music, stories, and special projects. For Shabbat, for example, we may bake our own challah. All the classes learn prayers, sing songs, and welcome this weekly celebration. Children make their own kiddush cups, candle holders, challah covers, and tzedakah cans to use in their celebrations at home. Parents join their children in a joyous Chanukah party in the winter. The traditions and activities surrounding these and other holidays - Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Tu B'shvat, Purim, and others - are an important part of our program.
