Picture an evening in the middle of summer ~ the weather is too nice to be indoors, and you take a walk to your neighborhood playground to let the kids burn off some energy before the day is done. When you get to the park, you discover that there are many other families that you know, with their children, and a potluck dinner is set up under the picnic shelter. It’s a Friday night, and PJ Library in Dayton is hosting a Shabbat in the Park. What better way to bring in a summer Shabbat than with old and new friends for children and parents alike?
This is the scene that happened this past summer in Dayton. PJ Library created a series of Shabbat evenings in neighborhoods across Dayton. Familiar faces as well as families new to the area enjoyed the ease of joining together to celebrate Shabbat in a casual setting.
