Families at Temple Emanu-El connects families with children through a combination of fun events, learning opportunities and holiday programs. Being together from the time our children are very young establishes a solid social network for adults and children to grow together Jewishly. There are events planned throughout the year including family Shabbat dinners, Havdalah celebrations, Shabbat Yeladim (Tot Shabbat) on the first Friday of each month at 5:30 p.m. and Shabbat Mishpacha (Family Shabbat) on the Fourth Friday of each month.  Join us on a Jewish journey of making friends, building community, learning about Judaism and family fun!

Join our Facebook group; Families at Temple Emanu-El of West Essex to keep up to date on all events.
