Young Families Education Program

One each month will be an family education program open to the whole community (toddlers - 2nd grade, with an adult who loves them). These themed monthly programs will include music, large muscle activities, an art project focused on the days lesson and will have a project based on the monthly theme requiring adult participation, which children will take home that day so they can use it. We will share with the adults who are present ways to carry the monthly theme over into their life at home with suggested books, music, and other projects. Themes and dates listed below. These are open to the community, but require advance registration to ensure adequate supplies and space.

  • September 9th — Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur pre: come learn some fun ways to help your family engage meaningfully with the upcoming High Holy Days, even if you don't attend services.

  • SUNDAY Sept 17th — special second day of Rosh Hashanah ZOO event.

  • October 21st — bring your lovies and learn about the story of Noah's ark from the inside out as we reenact the story by building our own ark as a community and make it through the rain to the promise of a new day.

  • November 11th — focus on the family and gratitude. Learn a catchy song teaching names of family members in Hebrew, create an interactive (and easily packable) thanksgiving centerpiece focused on being thankful, and help act out a story teaching gratitude.

  • December 9th — a community wide Hannukah game room for groups of all ages. Join us in the TARDIS as we attempt to solve a wibbley wobbley timey wimey Hanukkah mystery through riddles, physical challenges, and more.

  • January 20th — Tu B Sh'vat Seder and Program, come learn about all the amazing things we do for and with trees while tasting new things and making new friends.
