Sunday Fundays, a program series of stories and songs featuring mindfulness, meditation, and movement in celebration of Jewish culture, is a partnership between Folkshul and the Free Library.
Children ages infant to 5 and their caregivers are invited to join us in Shakespeare Park on Sunday, August 22 at 10:30 a.m. The program is led by Ms. Becky, Head Children’s Librarian at the Parkway Central Library Children’s Department, along with special guest Shayna from our Culinary Literacy Center’s Nourishing Literacy team.
At this final event of a three-part series, we will read picture books with Jewish themes and characters (previous Sunday Funday programs featured An Egg for Shabbat by Mirik Snir and Mitzvah Pizza by Sarah Lynn Scheerger), and move along with music by recording artist and kids yoga educator Bari Koral.
Yoga mats will be available, but you can also bring your own. Each child will receive a take-home craft activity kit and a free book, courtesy of the Free Library.
Folkshul is an inclusive cultural and humanist Jewish community and Sunday School. They celebrate Jewish holidays and life-cycle events, inspiring deep, socially conscious Jewish identities. Folkshul has been an active community for over 50 years and embraces families of all backgrounds. It meets Sundays during the school year and has summer programming for the whole family!
Shakespeare Park is located directly across the street from the Parkway Central Library, 1901 Vine Street.
Sunday Fundays will continue in the fall, meeting at various locations around the region each month. The first school year Sunday Funday will be held on Sunday, September 19 at Fort Washington State Park to celebrate the fall harvest festival of Sukkot.
