Beth El has a range of programs available for toddlers and their families.
During Simchat Tot, which takes place one Sunday morning per month, families with children age 4 and under are invited to join us for songs, stories, and craft projects. Simchat Tot is a relaxed, fun gathering. Each one explores a new Jewish theme. We get going at 9:45 am and finish at 10:30 am, in the upper level of the Freedman Center, across the parking lot from the main sanctuary building. For more information, contact Education and Youth Director Elisabeth Albert Gerson.
The Annual Simchat Tot Picnic is an (adorable) highlight of the year. We eat a light meal and enjoy a casual afternoon of socializing, running around, playing games, and hanging out on the playground. The next picnic will be on Saturday, May 13, 2017.
We also regularly have Tot Shabbat services on Saturday mornings at 10:30 am, geared for kids age 4 and under, plus their parents. For more on Tot Shabbat, check out our youth services page.
Beth El Preschool (located in the main building) is open to children from all backgrounds–not just Jewish children or Beth El members. You can find more information about the preschool here.
