Tot Shabbat

Friday, September 25 at 5:30 pm on Zoom

Join Rabbi Shankman on Zoom for a fun Tot Shabbat service where you can sing, laugh, and start your weekend (virtually) with friends.

Some items to have on hand:

  • Shabbat ritual objects (candles, kiddush cup, challah) -- they can be real or toy versions
  • A musical instrument
  • A favorite stuffed animal
  • A favorite adult who can celebrate Shabbat with you and help you write in the zoom chat and/or unmute you when it is time to share
  • A great big smile!


ECC Virtual


WHC is supporting your children beyond the walls of our early childhood centers! Our "Sweet Beginnings" online programming has been developed around children's interests and curiosity and begins August 31.

Join us to explore, wonder, and create!

Our incredibly talented educators Kfirah HaLevi and Kristin Zeldes will take your children on a unique journey and engage their young minds through open explorations and thought-provoking questions. With Jewish values and developmentally appropriate experiences in mind, your children will build and renew friendships and continue to flourish.

We understand that one size doesn’t fit all, and our vibrant schedule gives you the flexibility to select the programs that best suit your family. We will provide program materials to support your children’s explorations.
