PJ Shabbat Picnics In the Park 

Relax, rejoice, and reconnect for Shabbat this summer. Every picnic is a chance to meet new friends and catch up with old ones – our PJ Connectors will provide unique experiences at each picnic that keep it easy, safe* and fun! Every family will receive a PJ Shabbat Picnic Bag which includes a park blanket, drink koozies, juice, challah and more!

* All picnics require preregistration and a health screener. Families should be masked and asked to set up their park blankets distant from one another.

Dates and locations will vary. Please read each picnic’s full description for details. Each picnic that includes dinner is $36.  Rain Plan: Your PJ Connector will notify you if the picnic needs to be reschedule due to inclement weather.
