Youth & Family Engagement

Cheryl Stern, Director

Our Mission

Family Engagement at Temple Tikvah serves families with children from birth through high school. Our programs acts as a home base to facilitate Jewish experiences and inspire families from all backgrounds, to seek out and create their own points of Jewish connection, both individually and as a family unit.

Just as we acknowledge that each family is unique, we recognize that engagement in Jewish life is not one size fits all. Family programming is inclusive, accessible, and fun, furthering the path of life-long learning for each individual. By creating welcoming, immersive and diverse programs that transcend our physical synagogue space, Family Engagement brings Jewish values to life, both in the home and in the larger world.

Through participation in the community,  it is our tikvah, our hope, that all families will create deep and lasting bonds inside of Temple TIkvah that will radiate outside of our walls.

Our Guiding Questions

These seven questions inform the work of education throughout the Youth & Family Engagement Department. Children and families at different ages and stages will be guided in answering these questions for themselves and for their families.

  • What do Judaism and Jewish values tell me about the way I interact with other people and the world around me?
  • What enables me to participate in Jewish communal life?
  • What makes my home Jewish?
  • What does God mean to me?
  • What is the role of Israel in my life?
  • How does Jewish history inform my Jewish identity?
  • What role does Temple Tikvah play in my Jewish life?
