Sign Up for Family Track

The Family Track program is designed to bring children and parents “out of the classroom and in to the congregation.” While students enrolled in Family Track explore the same curriculum studied by children in the Sunday morning program, the learning is experiential and multi-generational. In addition, parents and siblings participate in all Family Track programming with their children, creating a unique and meaningful family experience.

Family Track is about you and your children learning together. In our community we have many non-Jewish parents and some Jewish parents with minimal Jewish knowledge. Through Family Track, we provide the tools and materials you need to have a rich Jewish learning experience together – regardless of your depth of knowledge or experience with Judaism.

Each trimester, families (parents and children) enrolled in the Family Track are required to participate in:

Three Havdalah Programs: 4:00 -7:00pm on certain Saturday afternoons

  • “Parallel learning” time with parents and children studying separately with our Rabbi, Cantor, or other educators
  • Potluck dinner and social time
  • One hour “family education” activity all together
  • Singing and Havdalah (a brief ceremony that ends Shabbat)

One Congregational Education Day: Sunday Morning 10am - 12pm

  • Congregational Education Days include Congregational Learning Programs, Trip Day,  and Mitzvah Day
  • Multi-generational learning experiences

Three Shabbat/Holiday Worship Services

  • Though we are encouraging families to come to our early 6pm Friday service, you are welcome to attend any service to fulfill this requirement.

Three Hours of “At-Home” Activities

  • Families choose activities from our list, such as Shabbat Dinners with friends and family, watching Jewish-themed movies, reading books together, or doing a community service project.
  • Support materials are provided for all activities.
