Shabbat Tinker-Gan is a new monthly family program for Kavana toddlers and preschoolers (and their adults). Each time we meet, we will focus on a different aspect of Shabbat. We will be meeting outside in parks, rain or shine... so please come dressed for the weather. We will sing songs, read stories, do a Shabbat activity, and have time for parents to schmooze and build community. We encourage you to pack a lunch and enjoy a post Tinker-Gan picnic.


Shabbat Tinker-Gan will take place monthly on Saturday mornings, from 10:30-11:30am. Each month, we'll send a confirmation to registered families with clear instructions on where to meet us... the plan is to rotate parks/neighborhoods.

Please note: Registration is separate for each meeting to allow for maximum flexibility for families with young children. Please click on each date to register for a session.

Rachel Nagorsky
Shabbat Tinker-Gan Educator

Rachel found her way to Kavana when her son started at the Gan in 2016. She has worn many hats at Kavana, helping in the office, leading family hikes and now as the inaugural Shabbat Tinker Gan educator. She is excited to share her love for Jewish early childhood education with the Tinker-Gan community. When she’s not leading Tinker-Gan, you can find Rachel geeking out on birds and trees of the PNW or cooking up a storm in her kitchen.
