Fifteen young Jewish families came together on June 2 at Meadowood Regional Park in Brooklandville for “Shabbat in the Park,” presented by the Louise D. and Morton J. Macks Center for Jewish Education.
The families — all with children under the age of 4 and who live in the Pikesville/Mount Washington/Owings Mills areas — celebrated the arrival of Shabbat as well as National Doughnut Day. Co-chairs of the event were Laurie Rosen and Jen Schmerling.
PJ Library books were distributed to children, who also indulged in blowing bubbles, noshing on doughnuts and other activities at the event.
“It was really great,” says Rosen. “We did blessings over challah and drank juice and ate kosher pizza. It was just an informal Shabbat get-together, a fun way for young families to meet and socialize.”
