Connecting Interfaith Families to Jewish Life in Greater Cleveland by providing programs and opportunities for interfaith families to experience Judaism in a variety of venues, meet other interfaith families, and to connect to other Jewish organizations that may serve their needs.
A great way for Jewish professionals and volunteers who work with and provide programming for people in interfaith relationships to locate resources and trainings to build more welcome into their Jewish communities; connect with and learn from each other; and publicize and enhance their programs and services.
Join us in celebrating Yom Ha'Atzmaut - Israel Independence Day at this TOT Shabbat! We will have some fun learning about Israel!
TOT Shabbat services are family-friendly Shabbat services for families with young children and are led by Isaiah’s clergy (Rabbi Howard Jaffe, Cantor Lisa Doob and Rabbi Jill Perlman) and Jodi Jarvis, Director of Early Childhood and Family Life.
TOT Shabbat services are held once a month on friday evenings at 5:45 pm, last about 30 minutes, and are appropriate for families and children ages 0 - 6. Each TOT Shabbat service includes candle lighting, giving tzedakah, an age-appropriate Shabbat service, singing and a story with our TOT Shabbat puppets, Molly Mitzvah and Tommy Torah! And introducing, our newest puppet friend, Ilana Ivrit, who will be teaching us some Ivrit (Hebrew)!
After services, we join together for Shabbat table blessings, a complimentary family-friendly dinner and Oneg (dessert), arts and crafts activities, a playspace for our youngest guests, and the opportunity to meet other families with young children. We hope that you will join us! No RSVP is required for dinner. We hope you will join us and get to know other families with young children!
