Family Programs

 

Our Family Programs

We nurture family life by offering Jewish and interfaith families the warmth of friendship and connection through regular programming, including:

  • Family and Children’s Shabbat and holiday services and family events.
  • Potluck dinners, family hikes and sledding and swimming parties.
  • Gleaning from local farms.
  • Ceremonies to welcome newborns.
  • Bat and Bar Mitzvah celebrations.
  • Nature-based educational programs.
