New This Year!
Omanut – Judaism and the Arts
Jews have been making art since biblical days, when the artist Bezalel was commissioned to create the Tabernacle (the portable Sanctuary) in the wilderness. In these monthly sessions, children and adults of all ages will have an opportunity to deepen their connection to Judaism and experiment with different forms of artistic expression to develop meaningful relationships with others of all ages and generations in the broader Jewish community.
This program is geared for families with children (ideally ages 3-10), and adults. Adults can include parents, “empty nesters”, and older adults who may be far from or without grandchildren of their own. Sponsored by Kol HaNeshamah, with a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle, Omanut: L’Dor Va’dor is free to all, though registration is required. Participants may choose to attend one or more (or all!) sessions. Guest artists will lead parts of each session’s program. Dates and topics are:
|Jan. 12, 2020 Storytelling||April 26, 2020 Music and Dance|
|Feb. 9, 2020 Visual Arts||May 31, 2020 Fiber Arts|
|March 15, 2020 Cooking||June 14, 2020 Hiddur HaMitzvah|
All sessions will be held at Kol HaNeshamah, 6115 SW Hinds Street, Seattle, 98116, and are from 2:00-3:30 p.m.

Hands on Social Justice
Shabbat is For Families!
We hold our Out of the Box! classes on Shabbat intentionally. Shabbat is one of the central tenets of Judaism. Coming together as a community to learn and worship on Shabbat is also one of the most wonderful pieces of the Kol HaNeshamah community. We encourage you to come with your children on Shabbat morning – stay for Torah Study at 9:30 and then join the students and the community for Shabbat worship at 10:45.
Do not hesitate to email Director of Children’s Education, Elizabeth Fagin with questions or concerns.
We look forward to a year of learning with your children!
