Early Childhood Programming

Masha Savitz, Head of Early Childhood and Arts Programs

Our early childhood programs create an environment of educational play, igniting a sense of joy for Judaism while laying the foundation for a positive connection to Jewish community and identity.

PJ Library

Offered in conjunction with the Jewish Federation, Pj Library is open to the entire community. Together, we welcome the Shabbat with traditional blessings, read a PJ library Jewish-themed book,  and do a related art project. Our monthly event has been bursting with energy and enthusiasm.

JAYDE Shabbat

Every Saturday at 11am, during Shabbat services, little ones are invited for their own enchanted and magical Shabbat experience in our new JAYDE program, (Jewish Arts Youth Drama Experience) where Torah comes alive and the Shabbat princess-bride sprinkles holy mitzvah glitter dust to add to the wonder of the day.
