Families

Kol Emeth Family Programs offer a warm and friendly atmosphere with a strong sense of community. Our vision of family and parent education is to encourage parents and other adults to grow on their own Jewish journey rather than simply observing their children’s experience from the sidelines.

Family Activities for those with Little Ones

Jewish Baby Network 

Created in partnership by Congregations Beth Am and Kol Emeth, and serving the larger Jewish community of the Peninsula of the Bay Area, the Jewish Baby Network aims to engage expectant parents and new families in Jewish life. The Jewish Baby Network was created to share in both the joys and oys of having a baby.  While pregnancy, birth and babies can bring moments of awe and celebration, there are also times when parents to-be and new parents feel anxious, exhausted and alone. The Jewish Baby Network is here to connect new families to each other and the larger Jewish community, and to provide resources and education on how to bring the beauty of Judaism into a new family’s life. The Jewish Baby Network welcomes everyone, including interfaith families and those not currently affiliated with formal Jewish institutions.

 

Torah for Tots –

Every Saturday morning, families can enjoy Torah for Tots (TFT) at 11:30am.  Little ones (infants to age 5) and their parents celebrate Shabbat with puppets, parachutes, parades, prayers, songs, and Torah stories. All are welcome to join our teachers in a Shabbat service that is sometimes silly, sometimes sublime, and always spirited!

Throughout the year, Kol Emeth also hosts special holiday celebrations for tots and their families, and our young families frequently get together for picnics, playtime, and fun adventures around the area.  To hear more about our upcoming programs for Little Ones, contact us!

 

Family Holiday Programming

Ever shake a Lulav in a Sukkah? Kol Emeth ushers in each holiday with family-friendly programming. You can dance with the Torah on Simchat Torah, light candles on Hanukkah and hear the Megillah on Purim. Join us when we eat matzoh balls at our Model Seder and when we bring our sacred texts to life on Shavuot. Youth programming for holidays is generated by Religious School room parents, teachers and our amazingly creative teenagers.

Please contact the office for more information or to get involved in the next holiday.
