I am excited that Rabbi Kurland coming to Adath for the weekend.
My family is looking forward to sharing a special Shabbat with other families that have children the same age as our son and daughter.
I like that there are different programs planned, geared towards families in different age groups. Since we have a 3rd grader and a 6th grader, Saturday morning and Saturday evening look like they will offer two different conversations that we are looking forward to being part of. Our 3rd grader will be in Havaya that morning and our 6th grader will be in SMP. Also, we plan on participating in the lunch time discussion after services.
Rabbi Kurland is the creator of the siddurum that we use at Adath's Jr Congregation. These siddurim have been helpful for my daughter to feel like she is able to read the siddur at services. I am looking forward to hearing more ways and ideas that Rabbi Kurland has to make services more comfortable for our K-4th graders.
The Saturday evening discussion is one that we are having at home within our own family and I am glad we will be able to hear other’s ideas and brainstorm together ways that we can help as a community.
