Early Childhood

The Family Early Childhood Center at B’nai Jeshurun Congregation is a resource for family education and offers programs for families with children ages birth-5. As we create enjoyable experiences for parents and children, expanding families’ Jewish horizons, we also establish strong personal relationships among participants. We are welcoming and open to congregants and to those in the greater Jewish community. We welcome parents, grandparents and caregivers who participate for the benefit of their children. Most of our programs are free or very affordable; some are ongoing programs like Kinder Shabbat.​
