Young Families

Glen Rock Jewish Center welcomes young families to be part of synagogue life!

Young families and children at a Shabbat service
 
Shabbat Together
We host a monthly Friday evening Shabbat Together for young families, appropriate for children newborn through 8 years.  The evening begins at 5:15pm with a short young-family-friendly sing-a-long, followed by dinner at 6:00pm and family-friendly erev Shabbat services at 7:00pm for the whole community. 
 
Please see our calendar or scroll down on our website home page for a schedule of upcoming Shabbat Together dinners.  Registration is required to attend.
 
 
Tot Shabbat
Dance with the stuffed Torah! Shake to the tune of "Haleluyah."
 
Our Tot Shabbat for Nursery School-aged children is held monthly on Saturdays, usually beginning at 10:45 am. Join Rabbi Schlosberg and friends for this interactive gathering. There is no charge for this program, but we ask that you RSVP by the Wednesday before to ensure we have enough food prepared.  
 
Please see our calendar or scroll down on our website home page for a schedule of upcoming Tot Shabbat mornings.
 
Holidays
Celebrate with us! We have a special "Apples and Honey" service on Rosh Hashanah and other special services throughout the year geared for young families as well.  Each year at Chanukah we hold our special Light up the Night program, featuring latkes, donuts and fire-twirling!  And every year we hold a Purim Carnival.  All of these programs are free and open to the community.
