Let’s Celebrate Yom Kippur

Tuesday, September 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Celebrate Yom Kippur with Pretend City! This day of atonement and forgiveness is one of the most important Jewish holidays of the year! Children will learn how important it is to say I’m sorry when they have hurt someone.

Time:    Morning Activities:  Sensational Storytime @ 11:30am

Afternoon Activities: Loud & Proud @ 3:30pm

*Activity times may vary and are subject to change*

  • Smart Art: Jonah & the Whale > Join us in the Art Studio today as we learn about the story of Jonah and the Whale while we paint a whale of our very own to take home.
  • Sensational Story Time (11:30am): On Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur > How can you tell when it is time for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur? The young girl in this story can tell when her family receives cards wishing them a Happy New Year. They gather together to light candles for the holiday meal and say blessings over apples and honey.
  • Loud & Proud (3:30pm): Saying I’m Sorry > In this hands-on lesson, children will learn about what it means to be sorry and role play different situations where they might need to apologize. Then children will sing a song about what they have learned. This lesson will help to develop children’s prosocial skills which is one key area that young children are struggling with in Orange County.

Grown-up Tip: On Yom Kippur (the Jewish Lent), you can encourage children to give up some basic comforts, such as a favorite toy, a special hair accessory, or even an outdoor activity. The important thing is that your child takes the time to choose a specific way to abstain that is meaningful to them.
