The hour before Shabbat is typically a quiet one at the Simon Family Jewish Community Center at the Sandler Family Campus.

That wasn’t the case on April 12. Young children and their families prayed, sang, ran, ate, laughed, crafted and ran some more—at a Family Shabbat dinner presented by the Young Adult Division of the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater.

Approximately 40 people, including YAD committee members and others from the community, enjoyed a kid-friendly kosher dinner, the opportunity, to craft candlestick holders, time to meet, mingle and catch up with one another, and the use of the gym for children’s activities.

YAD holds several family Shabbat celebrations each year, for young Jewish professionals and others in the community. To find out more about YAD, upcoming events, and how to get involved, visit www.jewishva.org/yad.
