On Sunday, November 6, Neve Shalom will be celebrating Jewish Book Month by hosting a special tea party for children, both young and old, and their favorite doll. This enjoyable afternoon will be filled with things to do for children from 5 and over.  While enjoying light refreshments, guests will learn about Rebecca Rubin, an American Girl® historic character, who grew up on New York City’s Lower East Side in 1914, during the peak of America’s immigration period. Some of the other exciting activities include: jewelry crafting for the child (and their doll), a fashion parade starring all of the children and their companion, and sensational photos (with props) will be taken. The fun does not stop there: the afternoon will also include other games, prizes, and more! This event is open to the entire community. Come and join us for this outstanding program, and bring a friend.

The event will be held on November 6, 2016 from 12 noon to 2 PM at the Neve Shalom Ballroom, located at 250 Grove Avenue in Metuchen, NJ.  There will be a fee of $25 which will include all of the activities, and light refreshments, for each child, their doll, and one parent or guardian.  Siblings can also join in the fun for an additional $10. Advance registration is required by filling out a form located at by October 15th.  Seating is limited, so register early to guarantee that you, your child, and their favorite doll, will be able to take part in this unique experience.
