Temple Har Zion Family Fun - Kef Mishpachti Programs for Children Ages 1-7

Whether you light candles every Friday night or whether Judaism is a newer part of your life, the Family Fun events for children ages 1-7 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, your child, and extended family (grandparents, and ...) can celebrate, learn, and connect with the Har Zion's community of families with young children families.

Programs for young families sometimes conducted on Zoom. Email the temple office or Claudine Guralnick for the password if you need it. Registration is often required.

See the sidebar for our current offerings!
