Young Families & J-Start


JStart is Beth El’s rapidly expanding initiative for families with young children, ages 0-6. We offer programs on the 1st Shabbat of every month (except July), and throughout the year to engage families in Jewish life.  

Our programs are open and inclusive to all families, including but not limited to interfaith, multi-racial, multi-cultural, single-parent, LGBTQI families and families with special needs.

We offer FREE tuition and synagogue membership to NEW Beth El families that enroll in our Sunday “BE InSpired” K or Pre-K programs.  Click the flyer below to email us!

Non-members may always participate in our J-Start activities regardless of congregational affiliation or membership.

Please join us for upcoming programs, and we always encourage you to bring  friends!

When my nephew was 4 years old he came to visit and sat in services with me. After about an hour he whispered, "Aunt Susan, I can feel G-d here." I smiled, "Me too, Daniel, that's why I come here."
