Jewish tradition is family centered. At Temple Beth-El we welcome young families and hope that you will come to view your fellow congregants as an extension of your own Jewish family. To help you find your place at Temple Beth-Elm we offer several programs for families with young children, including Tot Shabbat on certain Saturdays. View the Tot Shabbat 2019-20 Calendar.
Every Shabbat there is free babysitting available during services. Our caring baby-sitters provide a safe space and quality care to your child. With this peace of mind you can enjoy your prayer experience more fully.
Family Shabbat Ruach
Family Shabbat Ruach is a lively hour-long service for both children and adults guaranteed to uplift your ruach (spirit) and enliven your soul. Family Shabbat Ruach service is intended to welcome the Sabbath in song. Bring your entire family as we joyously welcome the Shabbat in song and prayer. Dinner is served afterwards.
