Forty families gathered by the pool at the Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus to welcome Shabbat on Friday, August 27. Hosted by PJ Library in Tidewater, in partnership with United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Young Adult Division, the night began with pool games, including a swimming relay for parents, and for all ages, a bucket relay and a penny dive tzedakah contest. Dave Flagler, director of Camp and Teen Engagement, led families in Shabbat songs and blessings over the candles, challah, and wine. Adults mingled and met new people, while children swam and played, running back to the dinner table for quick bites.
