Tiny tykes and their caregivers can enjoy the museum in a more relaxed setting giving both kids and adults more room to breathe (and crawl and climb). Museum admission rates apply. As this hour’s intention is to create a safe, comfortable play space for our youngest visitors, we ask families with older siblings to instead join for regular museum hours at 10 a.m. Zimmer Children’s Museum is located on the lobby level of the Goldsmith Jewish Federation Building, 6505 Wilshire Boulevard, Suite 100, Los Angeles, CA 90048.

Our Federation is offering six ways to join in on the global celebration: Senior Prom — The Senior Prom is one of the most fun, heart-warming volunteer projects of the year. The Federation's young adult group, YALA (20s and 30s) will be our volunteers who will spend the afternoon setting up, welcoming guests, serving food, dancing with a bubbie/zayda, and most importantly, making sure the seniors have a blast! Heal the Bay — Specifically open to members of The Network, alumni of Federation leadership programs, join us down at the shore to clean up Santa Monica Beach! We’ll focus on picking up those pieces of trash that often get overlooked but pose a danger to ocean animals and our environment. L’Dough V’Dough — Please join us as we bring Holocaust survivors to tell their incredible stories and braid and bake challah with our volunteers. YES Scholars — Help prepare under-served students for the rigorous private school admissions process by conducting mock interviews and providing constructive feedback. Shemesh Organic Farm — Please join us for this “Day of Good Deeds” project as we volunteer at Shemesh Organic Farm at Camp JCA Shalom. We will have the opportunity to plant in their garden, participate in a short interactive program, and then enjoy their amazing animal center. Volunteers of all ages are welcome! Wildlife Waystation — Get up close but not too personal with retired Hollywood and rescued animals, and perform gardening tasks such as raking, digging holes, hauling dirt, painting, and light construction.

This coming summer, we will offer a specially built, heavily discounted four-week NFTY Adventure program for our teens who are coming from West Coast congregations and from Camp Newman. This group will depart from San Francisco and Los Angeles on June 28, 2016, and return on July 26, 2016. The NFTY Adventure program is a unique and challenging four week summer experience created especially for teens who seek a meaningful and exciting journey to Israel filled with amazing memories and friendships which will last a lifetime. From ancient Jerusalem to modern Tel Aviv, from the beautiful Galilee to the stunning Negev Desert, you will create and be part of an intense traveling Jewish community of teens from all over North America. You’ll have opportunities to meet Israeli teens, ride a camel, snorkel in the Red Sea, mountain bike, join in a real archeological dig, swim in the Mediterranean Sea, celebrate Shabbat in Jerusalem, eat a falafel, and have the most amazing time of your life. With a great summer of shared fun and friendship as a backdrop, you’ll return home with an intense personal connection to the land, history and people of Israel, proud of yourself and your people. With NFTY’s renowned tour guide-educators leading the way, you’ll walk on the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem, make a pilgrimage to the Kotel -The Western Wall – travel back 2,000 years in time to explore the ancient tunnels around the foundation of the Temple Mount, and see the ancient Dead Sea Scrolls at the Shrine of the Book. As the sun rises over the mountains of Jordan, you’ll ascend the summit of Masada at dawn. You’ll float in the Dead Sea, cover yourself with the famous black mud, and cool off in the refreshing waters of the Nahal Arugot Waterfall near Ein Gedi. You’ll dig into your roots on an archeological expedition, unearth ancient pottery with your own hands, and crawl through the caves of the Maccabean Revolt by candlelight. Together with your Israeli peers, you’ll explore the Galilee and Golan, swim the headwaters of the Jordan River, wander through the alleyways of the mystical city of Safed, and “conquer” Crusader castles. As you travel with your friends you’ll spend three unforgettable days and nights hiking and exploring the Negev Desert. You’ll ride camels across sand dunes, sip tea in a Bedouin tent, snorkel the crystal clear blue waters of the Red Sea, relax on a sandy beach, and sleep under a peaceful blanket of stars. Before you leave for Israel you’ll select a “Chavaya”—special interest—module and during your stay. You’ll spend four fun-filled days pursuing your own interests while also making new friends from other NFTY groups. Choose from Yam L’Yam (Sea to Sea), Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World in Israel), Indiana Jones in Israel (Archeological Dig), and Gadna (Army Training). Before you depart for home, you’ll be amazed by the modern city of Tel Aviv, swim in the Mediterranean, shop on famous Dizengoff Street, and return to spiritual Jerusalem for one final visit as you prepare to conclude your spectacular summer of adventure, personal discovery, challenge and growth. When you do return home to family and friends, you’ll have wonderful memories of your once-in-a-lifetime journey of friendship and fun. More important, you’ll have newfound pride in yourself, your people and your land. read less
