An interactive virtual event with PJ Library in Southern Maine and the JCA
Saturday, Jan. 29th | 4:30 PM

Advanced registration required by Thursday, 1/27 to receive the Zoom link.

Join PJ Library and the JCA for a special musical family Havdalah live on Zoom with acclaimed Jewish educator and musician Eliana Light. Eliana will lead us in fun interactive songs and blessings to mark the end of Shabbat – the Jewish day of rest – and the beginning of a new week.

This program is geared toward families with children ages 2-8 years old.


Eliana Light has performed and led engaging musical programs at national conferences and for leading organizations and synagogues around the country and online. Eliana’s parents – a rabbi and a Jewish educator, instilled in her a love of Jewish ritual, culture and sacred song. She seeks to share this love others, and her music, programs, and teaching reflect a spirit of playfulness, embodied wisdom, empathy and joy. Eliana earned a Masters degree in Jewish Experiential Education from the Jewish Theological Seminary.

Gift bags will include a plastic kiddush cup to decorate, a spice bag, a glow stick, and Havdalah instructions.
Available for pickup at the JCA weekdays starting Tues. 1/25, 8:30 am – 3:30 pm, while supplies last.* 

*If you’re signed up and your child attends the JCA’s Goldman Family Preschool, we can send the gift bag home with them!
