PJ Library Yom Limmud Family Event

February 04, 2024 10:00AM - 11:00AM

Experience the exodus story “k’ilu” – “as if” – you were there in this interactive adventure. Join Miriam as she guides baby Moses down the Nile River, follow Moses as he discovers the burning bush, and dance across the Red Sea to freedom. Using immersive audio design, props, and imagination, you become part of the story in this unique and fun program. While this story is usually associated with Passover, it is read in Jewish communities as part of the Torah service this Shabbat. Join us for this adventure to dance, move, and imagine our way through this epic story.
