*Shabbat Shechina: Drag Queen Story Hour:
Twice during the year, our Tot Shabbat will include a special guest from Drag Queen Story Hour. Drag Queen Story Hour celebrates reading through the glamorous art of drag. Drag Queen Story Hour helps children develop empathy, learn about gender diversity and difference, and tap into their own creativity. It can also be life-changing and ultimately life-saving for LGBTQ kids and teens, kids with LGBTQ parents or family members, and anyone who feels different because of their identity or interests or who may not otherwise see themselves reflected in the broader culture.
