Holiday Celebrations

Celebrate Holidays at Senesh!

Families with children ages 2 through 8 years old are invited to celebrate Sigd with
Hannah Senesh Community Day School and Be’chol Lashon. Together we’ll learn
about this special Ethiopian holiday that celebrates Torah, Israel, and community
with Ethiopian music, dance, food, story, and other traditions!


  • Prepare dough for dabo, a traditional Ethopian bread eaten on Shabbat. Families can take their dough home to bake.
  • Beading with the colors of Ethiopia—red, yellow, and green.
  • Learn about traditional Ethiopian coffee ceremonies and create a coffee bean collage.
  • Traditional Ethiopian stories, music, and dancing.


  • This event will be held outside; masks are required for all including those who are vaccinated.
  • Anyone 12 and older must provide proof of vaccination.
  • In the event of poor weather, we will move our event indoors to the school gym.


Register in advance at bit.ly/seneshsigd or feel free to drop-in.
$5/person at the door; cash and Venmo accepted.
