Mishpachot (Family Programming)

The Mishpachot Program is a vibrant, multifaceted program that strives to bring Judaism to life through family programming that aligns with the values of the rich and diverse TBZ community.  We offer a variety of programs throughout the year for all ages, including:

Tfillot Mishpachot – Family services for three age groups: ages 0-4 and their parents, grades K-3 and their parents, and grades 4-7. These age specific services are designed to teach and familiarize the Shabbat morning liturgy and weekly parshiot to children and to instill in them a sense of community and belonging at TBZ.  Services include storytelling, parsha play, singing and dancing, and cultivating a sense of spiritual energy and delight!  Tfillot Mishpachot are held approximately twice a month, as well as community family services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

Holiday Programming for all ages, including Sukkot on a Farm, dancing, singing and stories on Simchat Torah, a family Tu Bishvat Seder, Hammentaschen baking, carnivals and puppets on Purim, and much more. Check our calendar for our holiday programming schedule.
