Kiddush in Honor of Liz Rios

Saturday, December 21

Generations of children who have passed through Shearith Israel have experienced the warmth, creativity, and enthusiasm of our tireless Tot Shabbat and Toddler Program leader, Liz Rios. This year, we'd love to give a little back!

Mark your calendars - families are coming together to honor Liz at a kiddush on December 21. To join our list of sponsors (starting at just $18), click here.
This program is underwritten, so all funds will go toward enhancing Liz's programming for our children.
We're also putting together something special for Liz and would love for you to be a part of it. If you have any pictures of your child from their years with Liz, please send them to us, along with 
a)  their name, 
b)  the year the picture was taken, 
c)  a message for Liz, and 
d)  a current photo of your child so Liz can see how much they've grown! 
Please send these to SM Rosenberg at Shearith Israel.

PICTURE DEADLINE: Friday, December 6.
