Mishpachot (Families) brings together our young families with children from birth to 6 years old for social and religious programs. We meet weekly on Friday morning for our Kinder Shabbat at Bnai Jeshurun where our youngest children experience Shabbat through music, play and challah making. We also hold fun, creative programs where children can learn through interactive play and parents can meet each other and schmooze. Mishpachot is not only a group that provides programs and activities, but your family will be part of a growing chavurah that will form lifelong friendships.




Every Friday at 10:15 a.m. all year long. Drop in for our popular “get ready for Shabbat” program with challah making and singing. Then stay and play. Free and open to the community.
