Havurah for Families with Young Children

B’nai Israel’s Havurah (group gathering) for Families with Young Children is a bi-weekly opportunity for families with children ages 0-5 to celebrate Shabbat and holidays through singing, activities, stories, and community with our clergy and our Bonim Preschool Director, Alexa Cohen. We welcome you to join us on the first Friday of every month at 5:00 p.m. for “Shabbat Play and Pray,” and on or around the third Saturday of every month at 9:30 a.m. for “Shabbat Social.” See our 2021-2022 Havurah event calendar above, and see below for more detailed descriptions about our “Shabbat Play and Pray” and “Shabbat Social” gatherings. All activities will take place at B’nai Israel unless otherwise noted, and we aim to be outside as much as possible. If/when we move inside, masks and other Covid safety precautions will be implemented.

The Havurah for Families With Young Children is open to all members of the Greater Bridgeport community. You do not need to RSVP or be a member of B’nai Israel to attend – all are welcome!  Dress is casual. For more information about the Havurah for Familes With Young Children or to join our email list, you can email Alexa Cohen at or Rabbi Sarah Marion. We hope to see you at Havurah!
