Hello everyone. My name is Neta Aviv,  Engagement Coordinator at Temple Shalom. We are thrilled to introduce an exciting program for children aged 2 to 7, Shalom Superstars! It will take place every Sunday at 11 o’clock on Zoom, beginning Sunday, November 1st.  During Shalom Superstars you will be able to meet and mingle with other families.

Each month Shalom Superstars will be based on a different theme like Jewish culture, Jewish holidays, and nature. We will capture the children’s imagination through creative activities like puppetry, storytelling, crafts, games, and music. Our programs will be interactive and fun for your kids.

As well as an overall guide to Shalom Superstars, parents will receive some materials and instructions for each week’s program. You will have the opportunity to come in person to the Temple to meet me and receive a kit. I look forward to seeing you on line and in person.
