Come to our Intergenerational Holiday Party!

Come experience activities, songs, cultural crafts (appropriate for kids and adults) and a delicious spread of traditional foods. Don’t miss this great event that celebrates the diversity of ages in our congregation and the diversity of ways to celebrate this festive time of year. Happy (Multicultural) Holidays!
