RELIGION BRIEFS Melanie and Rebecca Murphy enjoy the Hero Tot Shabbat at Temple Emanu-El. Contributed photo TEMPLE EMANU-EL HOSTS A SHABBAT OF SUPERHEROES Nov. 17 was the date for a Shabbat of superhe- roes at Temple Emanu-El, as young children and their families gathered for Hero Tot Shab- bat. Part of the synagogue's popular monthly Shab- bat Playdate program — which recently re- ceived a prestigious Incubator Grant from the Union for Reform Judaism — Hero Tot Shabbat brought Jewish and interfaith chil- dren, parents and grandparents together for a joyful, friendly and age-appropriate Shabbat celebration. In addition to enjoying playground time, a ba- gel breakfast and Shabbat blessings, songs and movement with Rabbi Brenner J. Glickman, children received specially decorated super- hero capes and decorated superhero-themed challah covers. They also listened to a story about the biblical Samson — the first Jewish superhero. Hero Tot Shabbat was chaired by Liana Shein- tal Bryant. Volunteers included Jessica Fair- weather, Erica Friedman, Amy Meese and Ali- cia Zoller.
