PTTS Shabbaton & CSI Young Couples & Families Luncheon

Saturday, November 3

 

Jr. Congregation with a Torah Reading begins at 10:30 am

Luncheon begins after Morning Services

Young families will form meaningful bonds at this first-ever PTTS Shabbaton. Students from our Polonies Talmud Torah Hebrew School will be preparing in class for this big day when they are invited to take center stage in our Junior Congregation on Shabbat morning, with a Young Couples and Families Luncheon to follow. Get to know our younger community members and their families, and cheer them on as they carry on our unique Shearith Israel traditions.

Special Opportunity for CSI Teens

We are looking for a few experienced Junior Congregation participants to mentor some of our PTTS students to help them prepare parts for this special event. Contact Yona Glass at yglass@shearithisrael.org if you would like to help out. This is a rewarding and fun chance to connect with our PTTS students, and can also be used to fulfill community service hours.
