Young Adults & Families with Young Children

The Porch is Temple Beth El’s thriving Young Adults and Families with Young Children 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.


Porch Month at a Glance

Check out the upcoming Porch events featured in our Month at a Glance publication. 

Tot Shabbat

Saturdays at 9:30am | Check the TBE Calendar for upcoming dates.

Sing, dance, and pray with TBE Clergy and Ms. Patty for this musical, high energy Shabbat. This service is designed for families with infants through pre-kindergarten. Families can enjoy this 30 minute Shabbat Morning Service followed by a craft, snack, and schmooze. There is no cost to participate; however, our program depends on volunteers like you!

If you would like to volunteer, contact The Porch.
