Family Education is an integral part of our school program and community life at Kerem Shalom. We offer experiential educational educational programs for parents and their children at every grade level as well as community-wide programs for families of any description (single or married adults without children, families with children of any age), to help strengthen our families and the tie between families and the synagogue, and provide support for fostering joyful Jewish life at home.
The family experience is at the heart of what we do together. Through conversation and play, study, re-enactment, art, music, and the work of Tikkun Olam, repairing our world, our families experience the gift of sacred family time in a Jewish context. Family Ed programming at Kerem Shalom enables parents new to Judaism to learn and be challenged without being intimidated, and to comfortably partner in their children’s learning.
Parents and children learn together about our Jewish culture and heritage—text, holidays, history, rituals and prayers—and the ever-evolving practices and interpretations of Judaism’s core principles and beliefs. Through parallel adult programming and group offerings JUST for parents, parents have an opportunity for deeper, more enriched learning and support, which will empower them to take a lead in teaching Judaism and modeling Jewish values for their children at home.
We look forward to having you and your family join us in Jewish learning and celebration!
