Tu B’av (August 2nd) is the Jewish calendar’s celebration of love. Express your Philly love at The Weitzman with JkidAcess and Adoughma play. To make the morning accessible for children with sensory sensitivity, the audio media at the Museum will be turned to a low volume. We’ll enjoy storytime, a kid-friendly gallery walk, and a special craft activity with Adoughma Play Events!

Accommodations: Thanks to a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia, we can provide accommodations for any child or family member with a disability to attend jkidphilly events. If you need an accommodation such as an ASL interpreter, a sensory toolbox, or even behavior support for your child, or if you have questions about the accessibility of any program or venue, please note so on our form or contact us. In most cases, our staff will need two weeks’ notice to provide accommodations, but we will do our best to meet your needs in any timeframe.


For more information: contact Gabrielle Kaplan-Mayer or  Suzanne Gold

For our in-person events, we’ll work together to take care of our community. Non-cloth (n95, KN95, surgical) masks are suggested for children ages 2 years+ and adults.
