Families with Young Children

Porch_2cThe Porch is Temple Beth El’s thriving Young Adults and Young Families community. The Porch is a broad community that builds connections between Jewish adults and families- from recent college graduates to parents of preschoolers. This diverse community offers many types of community-building programming from Happy Hours, to Tot Shabbat, to Havdalah services, all seeking to give people many portals into Jewish life where they can find deep personal meaning and build significant relationships with others engaged in Jewish living. Email The Porch or like us on facebook for more information.

Tot Shabbat

Join Cantor Mary and Ms. Patty for a musical 20 minute Shabbat morning service followed by a snack and craft geared toward little ones under age 6. No RSVP is needed and there is no cost to participate; however, our program depends on donations from sponsors like you! If you would like to sponsor a Tot Shabbat or find out how to volunteer, email The Porch.

Contact Cantor Mary for information or to join a Shabbat Supper Club!
