Families with Young Children

Temple Beth David welcomes families with young children to all services, as well as special services and celebrations designed just for them.  Young children and their families interact with our clergy and with each other as age appropriate learning begins.

We are excited to partner with Hebrew College to offer this popular parenting class – open to all parents, grandparents and other caregivers! Relevant topics will speak to the challenges and joys of raising kids with Jewish values today. More details and sign up information here: Parenting Through a Jewish Lens. Rabbi Karen Citrin and Rabbi Hillel Greene will lead the program.

Meet the rabbis and other temple families for a casual end of summer gathering. Bring a picnic dinner, have fun playing, and we’ll end with Havdalah to say goodbye to Shabbat. Kids of all ages and prospective members are welcome! In the event of rain, we’ll meet at the temple. Click here for more information: Picnic and Play.
