B'Yachad Together: An Inclusive Shabbat Service

Families with special needs will come together to celebrate Shabbat in an accessible environment designed to embrace a range of sensory, language, and learning differences.

We are proud to offer this first program on Friday May 4th, 5:30 – 7:00pm.

Recommended Reading and Music for ShabbatThe Shabbat Angels
Maxine Segal Handelman, Illustrated by Joani Keller Rothenberg
$13.95

Something is not right in the home of Chaim Yonkel and his wife, Esther. Usually their home is filled with the smells of delicious foods, the sounds of laughing children, and happy smiles on everyone's faces. But this Shabbat finds the family fighting, Shabbat dinner unprepared, and the house a mess.

The Talmud tells the story of two angels, Tov and Rah. According to this legend, these angels follow each person home from synagogue on Shabbat and deliver a blessing. If Shabbat is being honored and the home is filled with Shabbat peace, the angel of good, Tov, gets to deliver the blessing that every Shabbat should be like this one. However, if Shabbat is not being honored, the angel of evil, Rah, gets to deliver the blessing, turning the same words into a curse.

This contemporary version of the talmudic tale, illustrated with breathtaking illustrations by Joani Keller Rothenberg, updates the story for today's families. The Shabbat Angels will delight the whole family while it teaches the importance of Shabbat shalom, Shabbat peace.

 


 

Recommended Reading and Music for Shabbat Tot Shabbat
Written and illustrated by Camille Kress
$5.95

This board book for toddlers encourages parents and children to share a rich spiritual and sensory Shabbat experience. Artist and author Camille Kress created this story on cardboard for her young son because heavy pages cannot be torn by little fingers. Her warm watercolors depict Shabbat symbols within the home--candlesticks, challah, and a Kiddush cup--and a family celebrating a peaceful Shabbat evening.
"Simple and engaging."--Booklist
