Description Believe it or not, High Holy Days are just around the corner, and so is the start of the school year. Kick off the start of the high holiday season at Congregation Etz Chayim’s upcoming family open house “The Shofar is Calling You!” Families with children ages 3 through 16 are invited to join us on Sunday, August 25 from 1 – 3:30 pm at our synagogue in Palo Alto for an afternoon of FREE family-friendly activities and fun learning experiences leading up to Rosh Hashanah. Enjoy an afternoon of shofar blowing workshops, Jewish puppet shows and storytelling, and a chance to meet a real beekeeper to learn about honeymaking. Crafts and games in our beautiful backyard, as well as learning workshops and Jewish Jeopardy, will offer fun for kids from toddlers to teens! It’s also a great chance to meet our dynamic new Director of Learning, Abra Greenspan, and learn more about our exciting youth education programs! For more information, please see our website or contact Abra at or call (650) 813-9094.
