Bowling Party for kids, parents

12/31/2014 08:22:40 PM


On December 25, Congregation Shevet Achim Youth Program Director Jodi Negrin organized a family day at Kirkland’s Tech City Bowl.

“Christmas day is often a family day for Jewish families and many venues are closed,” Jodi said. “When we heard bowling was opening for the afternoon, we jumped at the opportunity to organize a family outing.”

About ten families participated, bringing kids of all ages. A good time was had by all.

This event was part of an increasing number of family activities offered by Mercer Island’s growing congregation. Shevet Achim’s more than 90 families have nearly 100 children. Jodi Negrin runs a youth service during many Shabbat and holiday services. A toddlers’ program is also offered.

With Shevet Achim’s new building opening in January, the congregation’s families look forward to larger, convivial spaces for classes, youth services and just plain fun.
