Family Shabbat Clusters
Family Shabbat Clusters are groups of 3-4 families who get together monthly to celebrate Shabbat together around for meals and/or playdates. This is a great, casual way to get to know more families raising Jewish children in the DC metro area (Please note that we define "Jewish child" however you do!). Families sign up and share information about different ways they would like to celebrate Shabbat. We at the EDCJCC will pair you up with families who have similar interests, geographical location, and/or ages of children. Then, once a month, a small group of families get together to experience Shabbat in the best way for your cluster. We welcome ALL kinds of families, including interfaith families interested in exploring Shabbat in a safe, joyful, family-focused environment.
All participants who register for the Shabbat Clusters program will be placed into clusters of 3-4 families. Clusters will organize themselves to meet once a month from November through January (or beyond, if desired!).
