Parents and kids exploring together

For families exploring Jewish connections, our early childhood programs are welcoming and low-key ways to get to know the Shir Tikvah community. Come and join the fun! All programs are open to nonmembers.

Tot Shabbats are monthly family Shabbat gatherings geared for children under six. These lively mornings are a fun mix of singing, dancing, and storytelling, followed by snacks and simple craft projects when we're in person. Free and drop-in; RSVPs aren't necessary. Meets at the Temple, or on Zoom when needed for public health. Click here for the schedule.

Experiencing Jewish Life (we call it EJL for short)  is a monthly co-learning program for families with two and a half to five-year-olds. Everyone begins the morning with foot-tapping songs and music with Beth Levin, our cantor. Then children go off to a pre-school or kindergarten class, and parents can attend a workshop with Rabbi Cari to deepen and expand their own Jewish parenting.  Open to members and non-members alike.  Use the form below to pre-enroll if you're new to our community!
