Congregation Beth El welcomes families with young children to participate in our many educational and social programs. On Friday evening once a month (generally the first Friday of the month), the J-Start community celebrates Shabbat with a special Tot Shabbat. This family-focused program welcomes Shabbat with blessings and joyful singing. An interactive project and pizza round out an evening of making new friends and having fun! Membership at Beth El is not required to participate in J-Start events. Friends, grandparents, siblings and other extended family members are welcome.
