Let this booklet guide you through the High Holy Days with your children with helpful suggestions for conversation points, activities, crafts and ways to make the days interesting and relevant to kids and teens of all ages.
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.
Currently, Shir Shalom numbers more than 90 households. We have developed an extensive Adult Education program (which graduated its first Introduction to Judaism students in December 1999), an active Sisterhood and Men's Club, a K-8 Religious School with more than 40 students, and a Hebrew School for B'nai Mitzvot. We also host part of the Sonoma County Jewish Film Festival, have celebrated baby namings and B'nai Mitzvot (with more on the way!), and the editor of our monthly newsletter took first prize at the county-wide Simcha Sunday Kugel Cook-Off in October 1999. (And yes, it was delicious.)
Like myriad Jewish communities everywhere, Congregation Shir Shalom is busily weaving its own notes into the multilayered melody that is Judaism. And that song becomes stronger and more beautiful with each passing Shabbat.
