– Shabbatonim, Shabbat’s Cool & Youth Groups

Shabbat’s Cool, Shul-ins and Shabbatonim
What is your favorite memory about being Jewish? Services? Hebrew School?  If you are like most kids in the world(!) you will immediately say that CAMP was the most awesome Jewish experience of your life. Too bad we can’t go to camp all year long so instead, we will try for a camp experience at least once a month. Shabbat’s Cool and our special Shabbatonim will allow you to keep those camp memories alive and celebrate Shabbat with song and special activities. Each Shabbat will have a theme that corresponds to the Jewish calendar where we will learn, play, eat and just hang out.

Any Jewish student in Omaha is welcome to come and be with us, so bring your friends!

Please Note: Shabbat’s Cool is NOT optional.  It is part of the BESTT curriculum.

Costs and additional information for Shul-ins and Shabbatonim will be on the website and in the monthly mailings as we get closer to the event dates.
