Young Family Engagement

We are of all ages, and we are ageless.

At Beth Emet, we strive to foster a sense of community within our large congregation and engage children and families in a variety of Jewish experiences, from classroom education to holiday celebrations.

We offer ongoing activities throughout the year for children and families to enjoy, including a monthly Shabbat celebration geared to ages five and under, and special events throughout the year such as holiday celebrations and music classes.

Welcoming All Families with Young Children

Young Family Engagement’s programs are for families with young children (perfect for kids ages 0-5) to explore Judaism in a lively, experiential and supportive community. This group hosts Jewish family experiences and provides a comfortable space for those of any religion to explore Judaism. From Pizza in the Sukkah to Tot Shabbat to Singing and S’mores, we have events the whole family can enjoy. This group is for you if you want to meet families with other little ones, are passionate about Jewish learning for your kiddos, or are looking for a new playdate pal.

Bring the warmth of Shabbat to the youngest member of your family.

Each month we’ll enjoy a fun celebration: a brief Saturday morning service and kiddush, a Havdalah sing-along, a Friday evening dinner, or even a pizza party!

Check our website for the plans this month. 



When: Sunday mornings

Gan Yom Rishon is a class for young children and their parents and caregivers. Each Sunday morning during the school year students enjoy creative activities together while exploring Jewish traditions and values.

Our curriculum focuses on a monthly Jewish learning theme surrounding relevant traditions and holidays through various activities from movement to cooking to hands-on crafts.
