Family Programming

We aim to nurture, inspire and create points of Jewish connection for our families as their children grow within our community. Our family engagement programs provide the space to enrich the lives of children and parents through immersive experiences, Shabbat, and exciting cohortized activities rooted in Jewish learning and practice.
