Wellington Temples Host Havdalah Animal Encounter

Cantor Jennifer Duretz-Peled, Rabbi Matan Peled, Rabbi David Abrams, Rabbi Erica Rosenkranz and Rabbi Andrew Rosenkranz gather for the Havdalah service, which celebrates the end of the sabbath.

Temple B’nai Jacob and Temple Beth Torah joined together to host a Havdalah Animal Encounter on Saturday, Nov. 16 in the center court of the original Wellington Mall. Busch Wildlife Sanctuary Environmental Educator Mackenzie Comp brought native Florida wildlife and discussed their habitat, food and care. Some of the animals were like those on Noah’s ark, which the children recently learned about. After meeting the animals, children enjoyed ice cream and cookies while they watched a video.
