    Join Annie Matan on Friday mornings to celebrate Shabbat, family and community.
    Shabbat Groove is a spacious, playful and meaningful hour where children ages 0-4 and their grownups can connect through songs, stories, movement and rest. Our community proudly includes all kinds of families: LGBTQ+, interfaith, Jewish, Jew-ish and those of other backgrounds who are curious about Shabbat and seeking community. We welcome participants of all abilities. Children bring the grownups who love them: their caregivers, parents, grandparents, and friends. Co-presented with PJ Library.

    Our shinshinim and youth leaders facilitate playful, hands-on experiences of Israel and cultural Judaism in an informal setting. Over the year, kids learn about Judaism, build friendships, and give back to the community. We will also explore the community and simply have fun at bowling, laser tag, or other group activities. In partnership with Camp Gesher/ Habonim Dror and The Miles Nadal JCC.

    Meet up in the playground where Jewish tradition meets your modern family! From generation to generation, our songful, soul-filled, and surprising celebrations invite everyone in your family to share their own spark. Our Groove festivals will nurture your family bonds and connect you with Jewish values through the feelings, sights, sounds, smells, and tastes of Shabbat and holidays.
    Groove celebrations are co-produced with Paul Penna Downtown Jewish Day School, Downtown Jewish Community School, MNjcc Israeli Connection, Jack and Pat Kay Centre Camp, and Camp Gesher/Habonim Dror. We are proud to be part of the 92Y ShababaTM Network.
