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 into 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! Donations will be accepted to help cover the cost of admission for non-zoo members.
Please RSVP to the Temple office (515) 274-4679 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan on attending.
Saturday, June 29th at 10:00 a.m. will be our Pet Shabbat Service, held in memory of Elyse Weiss, outside on the Temple lawn. Bring your family pet and introduce him/her to everyone. “Horsing” around required!
