jBaby | Russian-Speaking Farm Playdate | 6.30.24

Sunday, June 30, 2024 9:30 AM - 11:30 AM <Add to Calendar>

One of the Jewish values that is easy to cultivate in tiny humans is that of compassion for animals. Come cultivate with us by visiting a farm with a mission (as well as goats, cows, and a llama). This Russian-speaking play date will engage your little ones in an animal-themed craft and story time, as well as the opportunity to feed and pet the animals. Participants will have access to the farm for the entire day.

Russian-speaking Jewish Division, JUF programs are funded, in part, by Genesis Philanthropy Group.
