Will you share some reflections, recollections, photos, memories of the Shabbat School experience for you, your children, your family? Deborah and Brad (Havurah’s new Communications and Membership Coordinator) will create a short film for our celebration. You can:


  • Send photos from any time in the last 40 years to, or we can take your hard copy photos and use those as well.
  • Email Brad to schedule a time for us to film you talking about the program. All ages of parents and children welcome. Filming starts in September.
