PJ Havdalah Party

On December 9, 2017 at 5:00 pm., come say “goodbye” to Shabbat and “hello” to fun! Kids come in pajamas and enjoy dinner, Havdallah, and an extra-special event!


This year, we'll be wowed by Mr. Vinny's Shadow Puppet Show. His shows are very interactive, silly and surprising. You won't believe the shapes he can make with shadows, and you won't belive the stories we come up with together!

Our annual PJ Havdallah Party is just right for tots ages 0-5 and their families. Come in your pajamas for extra silly fun! A light dairy dinner will be served.


Register your family here for a full night of fun. This event is open to all, so please invite all of your friends and neighbors to join us too!
