interactive Jewish experiences for Pre-k

Our families with young children come together for interactive experiences to explore Jewish holidays, learn Jewish values and to bond over the “joys and oys” of parenting.  Activities take on many forms, for example:

  • Baking challah 
  • Fall family scavenger hunts
  • Friday night dinners with songs, prayers, and socializing 

Families with young children connect monthly on Sunday mornings and Friday night dinners throughout the year.  All families with young children (ages 5 and younger) are encouraged to attend our interactive Jewish experiences. Older siblings and friends are welcome! There is no charge associated with these events. For a calendar of tot or parenting programming click here.

For more information, please contact Rabbi Wendy Pein, Director of Education and Youth Programs, at 271-4705 ext. 123 or
