Temple Har Zion Programs for Young Families with Children Ages 1-7

Whether you light candles every Friday night or whether Judaism is a newer part of your life, our events are geared for you and your children and your whole family (yes, grandparents too!). You will meet and have a chance to interact with other families with children 1-7, while cultivating a sense of community, participating in interactive programs for your children, and celebrating the holidays in a kid-and family-friendly setting.

From Shabbat to Jewish holy days and festivals, you and your child can celebrate, learn, and connect with the Har Zion Young Families community.

All Young Families Programs are currently being held on Zoom. Email the temple office or Claudine Guralnick for the password if you need it. 


Regularly Scheduled Programs for Young Families

Young Family Shabbat-Related Programs


The observation of Shabbat is an important part of your child's Jewish heritage. The Har Zion Young Family program can help you incorporate the observation of Shabbat in your family's traditions. 


The following Shabbat programs are held on a regular basis throughout the school year.

  • Tot Shabbat –Join Ms. Carol to play, sing, and share Kiddish to celebrate the Shabbat. A Tot Shabbat bag will be available shortly before the program. Below is the program flyer from a previous Tot Shabbat. See the calendar in the sidebar to the right (or bottom on mobile devices) for upcoming Tot Shabbot.


  • Havdalah Fun —  Havdalah is the closing ritual for Shabbat, with blessings over lights, grape juice, and smelling spices. Havdalah is an inspiring way to start your new week as a family. Below is the program flyer from a previous Young Families Havdalah program. See the calendar in the sidebar to the right (or bottom on mobile devices) for upcoming Young Families Havdalahs.
