Shabbat and Apples and Honey

What a wonderful Tot Shabbat last night at Temple Beth Torah in Tamarac! We had about 40 people there from infants to grandparents. Many arrived around 6PM and went to the pre-oneg for beverages and food schmoozing with each other, then came to me for the Shabbat service. We had a wonderful time singing, and bringing Shabbat in with the appropriate blessings. We went back to finish up the service singing songs about apples, bees and the shofar. Our oneg consisted of apples and honey. The vibes were great; there was a lot of participation from all the generations there, and everyone seemed to leave with smiling faces. I left on a high.

This morning I went to TBO and the Torah breakfast was exciting and informative. Rabbi is always prepared with the greatest handouts and the discussions are so interesting. Whenever I go, I always feel like I learned so much! The service was very nice and it was a joy to see so many children there.

Well, a great Shabbat so far. Shortly it will be time for my grandson’s baseball game, then out to dinner with the family to celebrate my hubby’s birthday. I am excited to go to the game. It is the first one we are able to go to!
