Long Island's Oldest Synagogue. Renewed and Reinvigorated.



Every Friday, June 30 through September 1, Temple Adas Israel in Sag Harbor will offer families two new, awesome ways to welcome Shabbat: Challah Day and Shalom Shabbat

Challah Day at 11 am is designed for families with children up to age five. Each week, families will braid challah, sing Shabbat songs and blessings, create crafts, read PJ Library stories, and play! Think of it as a Shabbat-spirited play date for kids—and adults.

Shalom Shabbat is an all-family Shabbat celebration that starts at 5:30 pm. Each session opens with fun outdoor activities and crafts and then transitions to Shabbat songs and blessings. Families are encouraged to bring dinner and a blanket and join Rabbi Dan Geffen for the BYO-Picnic that follows.

On select dates there will be special additions to Shalom Shabbat. One such feature is water games at our Splish Splash waterpark scheduled for July 7, July 21, August 4, and August 18. Families are encouraged to bring a change of clothing/towel. Another facet is Welcoming Shabbat, a family-friendly Shabbat evening service at the synagogue, which will include a teaching by Rabbi Geffen and close with a festive oneg. It will happen during the Shalom Shabbat experience on June 30, July 28, and August 25.

Temple Adas Israel is part of the 92Y Shababa and PJ Library Networks. Our programs are free, upbeat, and all are welcome. 

Come help us celebrate our favorite time of the week!
