You can grab three balls of the same size (e.g., 3 tennis balls) or – for a better juggling experience (and only $5*) – we can order and deliver balls directly to your home.

Rabbi Seidel Appreciation Drive-by
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

COVID-19 may require that we keep a physical distance from one another, but we can still drive, bike, or walk by the Seidels house and wave. This is will be a fun way to show the Rabbi and Rachel how much we love them and appreciate all they’ve done for our community. 

Feel free to bring a sign or hang one out your car window. Make your own sign or click here for some TI signs to color and decorate.

No registration required.

If driving, please drive up Juniper Street and make a right on Morningside so we don’t cause a traffic jam. If you are biking or walking, please remember to keep a safe distance from one another and from the Seidels. Don't forget to wear a mask!
