by | Nov 2, 2017 | What’s Happening

Adam’s Animals by Rabbi Barry Schwartz
Sunday, Nov. 12, 10:30 am, Congregation Beth El

Adam’s Animals features Adam, who has a big job. God has asked him to name all the animals from A to Z. Some animals are happy with their names, others less so. A beautifully illustrated adventure through nature unfolds as readers learn why animals each have specific names and what those names mean.









Levi & Aya by Shoshana Banana
Wednesday, Nov. 8, 5:30 pm, Simon Family JCC

Levi & Aya takes on a denim adventure with young Levi Strauss, founder of the famous denim company, and his friendship with a young woman from Japan named Aya. An innocent love story for kids reveals itself, teaching audiences about the invention of the blue jean, traditional Jewish values, and universal ones like tolerance and compassion. Banana will lead a denim decorating craft. (Bring jeans to decorate.) Dinner included. Tickets: Children-$8/$6 JCC member; Adult-$11/$9 JCC member; Family, $32/$25 JCC member.

RSVP is required for both events. To RSVP or for more information, visit simonfamilyjcc.org/JewishBookFestival or contact Erin Dougherty at 757-321-2341.
