For Young Families


Our Congregation offers endless opportunities for young families to get involved.

From services to social events, there is something for everyone.

All events below are designed for families with children age 0-5 and open to the public. Older siblings are always welcome to participate.

Tot Shabbat – most 2nd and 4th Saturdays at 9:30 am, August-May (Monthly during summer)

Rabbi Folberg, Rabbi Levy, and Cantorial Soloist Sarah Avner share the leading of our exciting and engaging Tot Shabbat services. This service begins in our Sanctuary and is filled with songs, stories, and sometimes even dancing on the bimah. Following the service, we move to the preschool foyer for a snack, craft projects, and play time with other kids in our preschool living room or on our playground.
