Men’s Club World Wide Wrap, Sun., Feb. 1st at 9 A.M.

The World Wide Wrap is a signature program of FJMC (Federation of Jewish Men’s Club) focusing on a unique ritual imbued with story and metaphor that spans ages and generations.

Sponsored by our Men’s Club in cooperation with the TBEMC Religious School, the event aims to introduce adults and children alike to the special ritual of wearing t’fillin during Jewish prayer.

Children in 5th-7th grades will join the adult morning minyan at 9AM, with the special chance to wear t’fillin. Adults will be on hand to show them how to do it.

The younger children in our school will get to try a set of t’fillin between 9:30 and 10:30 in the library, with the help of Men’s Club volunteers.

Our youngest students will even get to make a pair of pretend t’fillin using craft materials.

More info from FJMC can be found here.
