Shabbatify Sundays

 Houston, TX – Evelyn Rubenstein JCC of Houston invites families to Shabbatify with us an additional Sunday per month. Families have been celebrating holidays and trying out new activities like Yoga, tennis and coffee tastings. The Shabbatify program is expanding to add one Sunday event per month. These events will involve social action projects for local organizations and visits to fun, family-friendly Houston locations.

“I am so excited that we are expanding to two events per month. The family participation has been great so far and we hope to include even more families with an extra day per month, and new kinds of activities,” said Rachel Teichman, Family Outreach Specialist.

The first Sunday event will take place on September 25, from 2:00pm-3:00pm at the Evelyn Rubenstein JCC. Families will create Rosh Hashanah cards and gift bags for clients of Jewish Family Services clients. These gift bags bring such happiness to people in the community, and it will be a special activity for families to be involved in.

November’s event will include a tour of BBVA Stadium, home to the Dynamo and Dash soccer teams. In December families will light candles with Seven Acres residents on the first night of Chanukah.

Shabbatify grew out of the J’s already established Mishpacha & Me group for families with children ages 0-5. Now families can continue recreational and creative activities, social action and celebrating holidays with other Jewish families.

Shabbatify events are coordinated by Family Outreach Specialist, Rachel Teichman. Visit for more information about our programs and services. Find us on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
