A picnic in the park for Shabbat
On Friday, Nov. 12, Shalom Families gathered in the park for a picnic Shabbat. Fifteen young families including many mommies, daddies, and several grandparents, came to enjoy the crisp fall evening. The group lit candles, said hamotzi, blessed the children, and sang songs to welcome Shabbat. Each family brought a dessert to share and the children were just tickled with the mountain of cookies and brownies to choose from.
All families who attended were given a 'How-to Shabbat' kit to take home that included candles, matchsticks, and a 'Shabbat Dinner for the Beginner' instruction sheet.
Shalom Families is part of the Our Jewish Orlando initiative reaching out to our community's next generation. For more information visit http://www.JFGO.org.
