BlankParkZoo

We will gather at the Blank Park Zoo for a special Shabbat program on Saturday, August 19th in which we will visit animals discussed in the Jewish tradition and learn some of what Judaism has to say about them.  We will gather in front of the main entrance to the zoo at about 9:45 a.m. and then go to the zoo.

The formal program will last about an hour and involve walking from exhibit to exhibit with prayers, readings, songs and a story about animals told along the way.  Tots will love it as will their grandparents and great-grandparents!We will gather at the Blank Park Zoo for a special Shabbat program in which we will visit animals discussed in the Jewish tradition and learn some of what Judaism has to say about them.  We will gather in front of the main entrance to the zoo at about 9:45 a.m. and then go to the zoo.  The formal program will last about an hour and involve walking from exhibit to exhibit with prayers, readings, songs and a story about animals told along the way.  Tots will love it as will their grandparents and great-grandparents!
