Family Education

From services geared toward families of all kinds, to workshops and programs to help the modern family, we offer a wide variety of family-friendly events and learning opportunities.

Tot Shabbat
First Friday most months 5:45pm; dinner 6:15pm
A special Kabbalat Shabbat Service for young families to welcome the Sabbath with stories and songs. Most months include a kid-friendly Shabbat Dinner after the service.

Family Shabbat Experience
Most third Fridays most months 5:45 – 6:45pm
With our families… as a family… we will welcome Shabbat with rhythm, with movement, with ruach and with song. Most months include a Shabbat Dinner after the service.

Shabbat Under the Stars
The opportunity to worship outside enables us to better encounter nature, and to remind ourselves that any space can become sacred through the manner in which we use it. Come and help us expand our “worship zone” as we welcome Shabbat.
