Young Children's Family Program (Ages 0 -5)


The Young Children's Family Program provides spiritual, educational, and social activities for children to age 5 and their families. Each Shabbat and on holidays, young children meet for age-appropriate and spirited worship services that include prayer, song, stories, and dancing.

YCFP offers an opportunity for young children and their families to engage in fun and meaningful ways with our Jewish traditions and lets families with young children make new connections with one another, whether through planning a Young Children's Havurah service together or chatting over an ice-cream kiddush.

During the year, YCFP welcomes children and their families to special programming celebrating the uniqueness and treasures of the Jewish calendar. These include children's services for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, Sundaes in the Sukkah, a Chanukah Pajama Party, Tu B'Shevat seed and tree planting, and a Purim Carnival with storytelling, face painting, and crafts.

Nursing mothers are welcome to use the Nursing Lounge off the Main Lobby. Changing tables are available in the Men's Room and Women's Room off the Main and Downstairs Lobbies.

At most kiddushes, size appropriate tables are set up so that children have a comfortable place to eat.

Perhaps most importantly, children are always welcome in all services in the synagogue.
