On Saturday, March 24, Temple Sholom of Fanwood/Scotch Plains invites familieswith children ages four and under to a Shabbat Pray & Play featuring music, maracas, puppets andparachutes. The monthly 30-minute interactive service, led by Student Cantor Vicky Glikin, begins at 10 am and will be followed by a free bagel brunch in the playroom. Older siblings are welcome.

 
“This isn’t your ordinary children’s service,” says Temple Sholom Director of Education Michelle Shapiro Abraham, who dreamt up the idea for an interactive Shabbat program when her own very active children were in pre-school. “It’s like where Shabbat meets Gymboree. The kids are encouraged to jump up, dance, sing and play along.
 
 
Afterwards, everyone gets a chance to nosh and get to know one another over bagels.”
 
Temple Sholom is located in the Fanwood Presbyterian Church at the corner of Martine and LaGrande Avenues in Fanwood, NJ. Meet in the chapel around the corner, off Marian. Please enter through the door on Marian marked Temple Sholom. For more information, please call 908-889-4900, e-mail sholom@sholomnj.org or visit www.sholomnj.org.
