Contributed photo TEMPLE EMANU-EL KIDS CELEBRATE SPECIAL SHABBAT Dozens of children, parents, and grandparents celebrated Shabbat and the blessings of nature on Oct. 12, as Temple Emanu-El kicked off its first Tot Shabbat of the season at Crowley Nature Center. Designed for Jewish and interfaith families with youngsters through age 6, "Temple Emanu-El's monthly Tot Shabbat programs provide meaningful, fun and age-appropriate Shabbat experiences for young children," a news release says. "In the beautiful setting of Crowley, participants enjoyed a family hike; collecting leaves, sticks and other natural treasures; and using their finds to decorate crowns," the release continues. Attendees also feasted on a bagel breakfast and participated in age-appropriate Shabbat blessings, songs, movement and a story with Rabbi Brenner J. Glickman. The event was chaired by Liana Sheintal Bryant and co-sponsored by Temple Emanu-El and the Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee, the release adds. Tot Shabbat programs will continue monthly. They are free and open to the community. For more information, call 379-1997. %
