Interested in connecting with other young progressive Jewish families? Have a child who’s not old enough for Sunday School, or who’s tagging along with an older sibling? Join Circle Playtime!
 
Circle Playtime is a free monthly playgroup for children ages 0-4, and their parents. Each session includes fun age-appropriate activities related to a Jewish or social justice holiday. We have music, crafts, learning, and lots of time for play. We always have a snack available, too.
 
 
Circle Playtime runs from September to May at the Runkle School, 50 Druce Street in Brookline. It is now meeting virtually in response to Covid-19. Reach out to meira@circleboston.org for the Zoom information. Check the regular calendar for updates. Everyone is also welcomed to join the Chanukah and Purim celebrations hosted by our Sunday School (Shule).
