Families with Young Children

Familes with youn children

Temple Emanuel is a warm and welcoming community that is ready to build curiosity and connections to Judaism with the youngest of minds. There are a variety of ways for families to engage with Judaism together, share our traditions, and create a safe space to explore each child’s Jewish journey. 

There are a multitude of programs and events that we encourage you to take advantage of at Temple Emanuel. Our Preschoolers share Shabbat Morning with Rabbi Max Chaiken and Cantor Idan Irelander, there are youth groups for Grade 3 and older, a Sunday Morning Shabbat Service for our Religious School aged children, and events geared specifically towards each age group.
