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. Everyone is also welcomed to join the Chanukah and Purim celebrations hosted by our Sunday School (Shule).
