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 “BE InSpired” Pre-K – 5th Grade 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!

What I discovered here was unlike anything we had ever experienced in the large Conservative congregations I had attended. I felt immediately drawn to this place.
