Young Families for Social Justice

Dive into fun and delicious activities for kids and families around a social justice theme in September 2023!

Saturday, Sept. 17 — “Earth, Apples and Pollinators” at Honey Pot Hill Orchards. Learn why we must protect our pollinators as we pick and taste apples. The event will include age-appropriate tashlich (symbolic casting off of sins). 

Sunday, Sept. 10 and Friday, Sept. 22 — As part of Beth El’s pre-Yom Kippur food drive, visit our preK-6 classes and bring cans of food as we learn about food insecurity.

Friday, Sept. 29 (5:30–8:30 p.m.) — Shabbat in the Beth El Sukkah with food and music! Kid-friendly service open to all ages (this will take place indoors if the weather is bad).
