Challah Tots

Members & Non Members, Ages 0-5 with an Adult

Meet with other Jewish and Interfaith families for a fun-filled morning of preschool-friendly challah making and story time in preparation for Shabbat. After braiding our challah and putting it in the oven to bake, we will enjoy story and craft time. All children (ages 0-5) must be accompanied by an adult. The program is now managed by PJ Library Omaha and is free for all thanks to a generous grant. This year Challah Tots will occur once a month and alternate between the JCC Youth Lounge, Friedel Jewish Academy, and the Pennie Z. Davis Child Development Center.
