Mazel Tots!

What is Mazel Tots?

Mazel Tov” is what we say in Hebrew to mean “congratulations!”. Many synagogues refer to their young family communities as “Tot Shabbat”. We wanted to a name that encapsulates what we dream this community will be: one of families in a similar stage in life that will share our joys and “oys!” with each other. And we thought it was cute. 

MAZEL TOTS! is an opportunity to celebrate the rhythm of the Jewish calendar with our youngest ones, to teach them to love Judaism, and to help them know the synagogue as a second home.

Our hope is to create a place/space where families can just show up without having to do anything in advance. You are carrying enough. See below if you would like to help!

What can I expect at a MAZEL TOTS! event?

Singing and fun, taking advantage of our little ones’ boundless wiggles

Jewish and/or Holiday related activities/crafts

A place where children can make noise and be themselves (and you too!)

We want this to be a community co-created by those involved. Email Rabbi Bess Wohlner and/or Rabbi Jeremy Simons to get started!

Mazel Tots! Celebrate Chanukah!
Saturday, December 9, 2023 | 4:00 pm
Congregation Bet Haverim
Two celebrations in one! 
For the Kiddos: A Chanukah Glow Party with Hillel Babysitters!
Bring your sillies and come dance and play! We’ll have glow sticks for everyone, crafts, a quiet corner with PJ Library books, and of course, snacks. Kiddos will get to play with babysitters from Hillel of Davis and Sacramento while their grown-ups enjoy some time together in another space on the Congregation Bet Haverim campus.
For their Grown-ups: A Chanukah Trivia Night with Other Adults!
Enjoy an afternoon with other Mazel Tots! Grown-ups while playing a very low-stakes version of a Chanukah trivia game with your hosts, and fellow Mazel Tots! parents, Rabbis Bess Wohlner + Jeremy Simons! We’ll have some nosh, a signature cocktail, a signature mocktail, and just generally get to make connections with one another.
$18 per family
A huge thank you to our community co-sponsors, Hillel of Davis and Sacramento + PJ Library

Activities focus on the 0-6+ crowd, but all are welcome!
*Please contact the rabbis if the fee for dinner is out of reach.
