Bar/Bat Mitzvah

Our educational program culminates in a collective bar/bat mitzvah ceremony for the 7th grade class. Students spend the year exploring their own Jewish identity through class readings and discussions, field trips, social justice activities and an individual research project. The ceremony is attended by extended family and friends, and is an important event in the fabric of our community.

Sunday School (Shule) Curriculum Overview

The Shule curriculum aims to foster a meaningful and proud Jewish identity, rooted in the historical and cultural Jewish experience and in a commitment to building a better world. That identity is expressed through community, learning, creative arts and culture and social action, not through prayer and worship.

Interested in connecting with other young progressive Jewish families? Have a child who’s not old enough for Sunday School, or who’s tagging along with an older sibling? Join Circle Playtime!
Circle Playtime is a free monthly playgroup for children ages 0-4, and their parents. Each session includes fun age-appropriate activities related to a Jewish or social justice holiday. We have music, crafts, learning, and lots of time for play.

Teens Acting for Social Change

Teens Acting for Social Change (TASC) is a group of energized teens making a difference in our world. TASCers build community, learn about social justice issues, and take action.

Family Holiday Celebrations

Families with children of all ages are welcome to attend our community-wide holiday celebrations and observances throughout the year. In addition, we create some services and celebrations just for families. As with our larger holiday programs, observance is not centered around prayer and worship, but rather our history, our values and our connectedness to each other. All families are welcome!
