Past activities and events have included a trip to the zoo incorporating lessons on Noah, a Purim scavenger hunt, and a simulated “Exodus” to teach some of the lessons of Passover. Our “Exodus” traced a more modern story of the journey of the Ethiopian Jewish community to Israel. The travelers were issued passports and stopped at different stations set up throughout the synagogue to simulate challenges that those on a real trip of this kind might encounter. These included a physical obstacle course, corrupt officials and wise elders. The last “stop” was Eretz Israel where there was dancing, song and a sumptuous sampling of Israeli foods.
Other highlights include several family Shabbat dinners throughout the year, which always include sing-a-longs with a twist.
This year we have another exciting roster of events promising great fun and fellowship.
