Shababa Friday/PJ Library Story Time

Friday, February 16 | 10:00-11:00am

Welcome Shabbat with this playful and soulful experience of singing, dancing, jumping, and celebrating as a community. On the third Friday of each month, children and their caregivers are invited to listen to music, gather for stories, play games, create a craft, eat a snack, and make new friends. This new-and-improved PJ Library Story Time will incorporate more music and movement as Dayna Bailen, our Shababa song leader, and her trusted friend Shlomo the sloth puppet entertain children ages five and under. Guest readers will bring PJ Library books, and open art studio time will be available. All are welcome.

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Dayna Bailen at [email protected] or 401.421.4111 ext. 108.
