Our Groove celebrations will educate and entertain the whole family with stories, songs, games, crafts and more, inspired by Jewish holidays, values and culture. We offer an open, welcoming community for anyone curious about Jewish life and proudly include interfaith and LGBTQ+ families, as well as people of all abilities.

    Grooves are co-programmed by partners in the downtown Jewish Community: Paul Penna Downtown Jewish Day School, Downtown Jewish Community School, MNjcc Israeli Connection, PJ Library, Matanot Lev, Camp Shomria/HaShomer Hatzair, Camp Gesher/ Habonim Dror, Darchei Noam, Narayver, KefTO, Danforth Jewish Circle and Makom .

    נכון שבארץ לא צריך להתאמץ כדי להרגיש חג? אווירת החג היא באוויר ומסגרות החינוך דואגות ללמד את ילדינו את המשמעויות של כל חג. כאן, אם הילדים לא במסגרות יהודיות אנחנו ההורים צריכים להתאמץ כדי שהילדים יכירו את החגים. Holiday Groove Celebrations של הדאון טאון הוא מיזם שאליו משתייכים מספר ארגונים יהודיים שונים באופיים אבל עם מטרה משותפת – לציין, לחגוג, לשמוח וללמד על החגים.
