If the family isn’t ready to head to Disney World, Congregation Kol Tikvah is bringing the happiest place on earth to Parkland.
A drive-thru event complete with activities, characters, and animals a la Noah’s Ark, was originally scheduled in November but postponed due to weather concerns.
The Magic Of Congregation Kol Tikvah is geared towards younger children through fourth grade, but all Disney lovers are welcome.
“We’re recognizing the challenges the community is going through,” said Avi Marcovitz, Education & Youth Engagement Director, “And we wanted to bring a little bit of happiness by having some activities and fun for children to create some fun memories during this time.”
Being a synagogue, there will definitely be a Jewish spin on the Disney fun. Marcovitz mentioned a petting zoo for a Noah’s Ark component, Aladdin for the middle eastern piece, and chocolates from Israel.
“We want to put a smile on everyone’s face and share a little about our temple at the same time,” he said.
The Magic Of Congregation Kol Tikvah will take place on Sunday, December 6, from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. It’s free and open to everyone, but families must sign up ahead of time at koltikvah.net.
Congregation Kol Tikvah is located at 6750 North University Drive in Parkland.
