Young Children

Shalom Friends!

Our Shalom Friends program offers an exciting and interactive Jewish journey for toddlers and young children all through the year.

Together with other families who have tiny tots to 5 years old, our Shalom Friends program offers a window into the exploration of Judaism through the senses. Meet other families, create meaningful arts and crafts, hear stories and music and make memories together with your children. Our Shalom Friends families delight in the Jewish joy they experience together at these events.

This program is open to the community, temple membership is not required. Please spread the word and bring your friends.

Led by educator Robin Faiguenbaum, Shalom Friends welcomes your children, their friends, grandparents and siblings who are not yet in Religious School.

“We’ve been coming to Shalom Friends for 3 years now. Our daughter loves it and jumps with joy when we pull into the parking lot. Thank you for your financial support of this great program.” Stephanie K.

Shalom Friends has really helped us grow as a Jewish family. We’ve been enjoying Shalom Friends for a few years now and have cultivated solid friendships. We learn as a family and make lots of crafts to take home and lots of memories.” Susan and Henry P.

“It’s so nice to have a program for younger children. Shalom Friends has offered a wonderful introduction to all of the holidays in a fun and engaging way. We look forward to attending future Shalom Friends programs.” Lynne and Daniel E.

“Our family really values the Shalom Friends program. Our daughter was a baby when we started and is now 3 and loves attending. As a parent, I love that she is learning about Jewish holidays, customs and culture on a level that she can understand. Now her little sister will be sharing the same wonderful experience by attending Shalom Friends.” Jenny K.
