Children, grandparents, and everyone in between, joined PJ Library in Tidewater and UJFT’s Young Adult Division on Friday, August 25 at the Sandler Family Campus for a celebratory End of Summer Shabbat. Swimming with friends and family, adult deep-water relay races, and a kids cannonball contest all added to the fun evening.

Rabbi Yoni Warren led a warm and welcoming Shabbat service that was followed by the community gathered around tables, enjoying Shabbat dinner and each other’s company.

The evening also served as a welcome party for Tidewater’s new Shinshinim, Maya and Naomi, who will be in the community all year bringing Israel to the area.
