Whisk, simmer, flip, bake, and blend as we cook a Sunday dinner in the SJCC kitchen for homeless teens. A great family activity to help make a difference for homeless teens.

Shabbat Unplugged: Twin Falls Hike

Twin Falls Trailhead, SE 159th Street, North Bend WA
Take a Shabbat hike on a beautiful, nearby, family-friendly trail. This 3.6-mile hike is great for beginners and younger kids. This hike has a big payoff at the end: a footbridge over the river right between two waterfalls. It’s definitely worth the trip!
