A Night Under the Stars: A Family Havdalah & Planetarium Experience


We are so excited for this Night Under the Stars! 

Gather at Beth El for the sweet smell of Havdalah, a pasta dinner & dessert with friends and a planetarium show under the stars! (This event is partially funded by the Alfred and Helen Weisel Education Endowment Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation of Greater Hartford.)

At 5:45pm you'll arrive at Beth El and a pasta dinner will be served.

At 6:15pm we'll recite Havdalah together.

At 6:30pm we will invite our younger set of friends (2nd grade and younger) to enter the HUGE blow-up planetarium
that the West Hartford Children's Museum will set up in the East Wing. While they are enjoying the 30-minute show, our older set will play Bingo and eat ice cream!

Then at 7:20pm, our older friends (3rd grade and up) will enter the planetarium while our younger friends play Bingo and eat ice cream. We’ll finish by 8pm.

Of course, the ages are approximate, so anyone can go for either show. This program is open to ALL ages – not just families!
