Join PJ Library for a special reading of "Bagels from Benny" to celebrate Shavuot.

Benny loves to help out at his grandpa's bakery in the morning, and the customers love the crusty bagels with their soft insides. When Grandpa explains to Benny that God, not him, should be thanked for the wonderful bagels, Benny sets out to do just that. He decides to leave God a bagful of bagels in the synagogue at the end of each week. And each week God eats the bagels -- or so Benny thinks ? Lovingly told, Bagels from Benny explores the values of caring and sharing, building a strong sense of community and finding joy in giving thanks.

After the story, kids can show that they care by creating get-well cards for people in the hospital and using bagels to make bird feeders.

$5 per child. Families are asked to please bring a canned good for the Jewish Family Service food pantry. Please RSVP to
