For Marriage-Minded Singles
A large component of our vibrant community consists of marriage minded men and women. The family life committee runs numerous programs to help facilitate people meeting, whether through traditional "shadchan" matchmaker assistance or opportunities for more organic networking. The various offerings throughout the year create outlets for community members of different backgrounds or expectations to find the type of programming that speaks to them.
Smashing Silence and Tackling Taboos
Learn more about our ongoing series addressing issues in mental health. We try to cover topics that impact many of us either directly or through people we know and care about.
We see lots of smiles at the annual Purim and Chanukah parties and our havdallah pajama party. The team also organizes a Tot-Shabbat program and Minyan Katan for older kids with organized songs, activities and play as well as occasional Shabbat afternoon gatherings.
Meals for new mothers
We work to support families with newborn babies by providing home-cooked meals during their first few weeks back home. Click Meals for Moms
We use Meal Baby to set up our schedules.
Tot Shabbat & Minyan Katan - Weekly
Tot Shabbat (for infants and toddlers aged 0-3 and their parents) meets in the Upper Beit Midrash. Free pay begins at 9:45am and a program with shabbat songs and activities begins at 10:30
Tot Shabbat offers infants and toddlers the opportunity to daven and learn exciting Shabbos songs. The group is lead by a parent volunteer, and each child must be accompanied by an adult who is asked to be an active participant. Each child is sure to have an enjoyable time singing, followed by kiddush and a light snack.
If you would like to volunteer, please let us know! Email: email@example.com
Minyan Katan for older children (3+) meets in the downstairs lounge at 10:15am, led by Morah Gila Price and her assistants. Each child will enjoy songs, davenning and activities.
Minyan Katan ends promptly when davenning at the main minyan is over.
