Here at Temple Tikvah, we're big on little ones. That’s why our Early Child Programs are thoughtfully developed and nurtured to educate the whole child, and engage the entire family. Our mission is to provide an unforgettable early learning experience with programs that enrich childrens’ lives by teaching the values of Reform Judaism. For over twenty years, our Early Childhood Program has been providing an environment that fosters independence, creative expression, self-esteem and community awareness. The atmosphere is positive and always stimulating, the methods are involving and hands-on, and our children are excited to be here.
Free to the community, the Tot Shabbat and Holiday Program is an introductory Shabbat experience ideal for young families with children ages 18 months to 8 years. Parents and children have the opportunity to discover the richness of Judaic values and traditions together as a family. Young families meet other young families within the community, learn Shabbat and holiday songs, hear stories and help their children create holiday-inspired art projects that reinforce Judaic symbols and culture at home. Parents, grandparents and other family members are encouraged to join in and experience the warmth and enthusiasm that the children share with our clergy, Rabbi Sheinberg and Cantor Bonne.
The Tot Shabbat Program is generally scheduled for the fourth Friday of each month; please check our schedule for any irregularities. If Friday evenings are inconvenient, join us for our Saturday Tot Shabbat and Workshop Program. We are evolving the program to include projects and material for the 6-8 year old.
The PJ Library Program at Temple TIkvah
The PJ Library Program provides families with children between the ages of 6 months and 8 years of age, with high-quality Jewish books, CDs and reading guides to help enhance the family’s reading experience. This program is funded through the generosity of Temple Tikvah and its Brotherhood in partnership with Harold Grinspoon, founder of The PJ Library. Registration for this program is required for receiving books and participation in PJ Library activities. There are a limited number of free subscriptions available.
To build upon the benefits of the PJ Library, we’ve created a storytelling program, “Read Me A a Story or 2”, to introduce PJ Library parents and children to an even wider variety of selections. Details for this program and upcoming PJ Library events are in the PJ Library Newsletter sent to all PJ families.
