Bedtime getting in the way of your Shabbat? Kitchen Playground (formerly Moms + Dads) is a group of mothers and fathers with kids five and under, coming together to build community and grow Jewishly. 

Feel free to come before services, hang out with other Kitchen parents and families, and get some shabbat in before your kids turn into pumpkins. Don’t forget to bring food for your early diners. Together we'll support, eat, and maybe tap into some Jew-ified parental wisdom that goes way beyond the healing powers of good matzah ball soup. 

Also? We have early childhood experts that help us keep your kiddos entertained and educated on Shabbat:

  • Playground Mornings with Melita Silberstein- looking to start your littles' Jewish education early? Melita, the fabulous children's music specialist and Jewish educator, will be leading 4 Shabbat AM services this year, with songs, prayers, Shabbat/holiday rituals, and Torah stories from 11 am- 12 pm. Appropriate for ages 0-5. Final date: April 28. $25/session + $12.50 for each additional kid. Scholarships available. Register, here.
  • Shabbat PM (Fri nights): Mimi Greisman leads Camp Kitchen from 6:15 - 7:45 PM. Appropriate for ages 0-4.
