PJ Library Shabbat Circle from 10:00-10:45 a.m.
The creative and interactive Shabbat service is geared to children ages six and younger and is a wonderful way for young families to experience Shabbat through stories, prayer, song, Torah, and creative movement in a casual and relaxed atmosphere. Snacks will be served at the conclusion of the service. Older siblings are welcome to attend. PJ Library Shabbat Circle is free and sponsored by the Robert I. Lappin Charitable Foundation, Temple B’nai Abraham and made possible with a generous allocation from the Jewish
Federation of the North Shore.

Our current reading selection is The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker.
In The Golem and the Jinni, a chance meeting between mythical beings takes readers on a dazzling journey through cultures in turn-of-the-century New York.
Chava is a golem, a creature made of clay, brought to life to by a disgraced rabbi who dabbles in dark Kabbalistic magic and dies at sea on the voyage from Poland. Chava is unmoored and adrift as the ship arrives in New York harbor in 1899.
Ahmad is a jinni, a being of fire born in the ancient Syrian desert, trapped in an old copper flask, and released in New York City, though still not entirely free
A hilarious group of TBA members has been working tirelessly on a shpiel (silly skit) for Purim evening. If you are interested in being part of it – no lines need to be learned – please be in touch with either Chuck Hirshberg (email@example.com) or Alan Weiner (firstname.lastname@example.org).
We will also have an adult costume contest… Purim is not only for children!
Please join us on March 15. Dinner starts at 6:30 and will be followed by shpieling and the Megillah reading.
Come again Sunday morning, March 16, at 9:00 for a more traditional Megillah reading with members of Temple Ner Tamid, followed by brunch.
