Over 400 children and their families joined us at the James S. McDonnell Planetarium in Forest Park to learn about Havdalah by experiencing activity booths and a star show.

Our sages taught that Shabbat ends when three stars can be counted in the evening sky. Even if the night is cloudy, the stars at the Planetarium will shine brightly.

Havdalah separates Shabbat from the work week, the holy from the mundane.  Under twinkling stars and glowing planets, families will participate in Havdalah and enjoy related activities.

A View from the Ferris Wheel
A Jewish Perspective of the 1904 World's Fair
Missouri History Museum

250 years after the first Jews settled on American soil, the 1904 World's Fair thrust St. Louis into the global spotlight. Were your relatives among the 20 million men, women and children who strolled the Pike, tasted their first ice cream cone, and caught an early glimpse of the flag that would later represent the new State of Israel?

Presented by the Jewish Family Educators' Network in co-sponsorship with the Jewish Federation of St. Louis and the Missouri Historical Society. Funded by the Gladys K. Crown Foundation, honoring the memory of Shirlee Green, and the Jewish Federation Rich Fund.
