Jewish Minds

Creating Meaningful Experiences

Our youngest learn by doing, hearing, smelling, touching, tasting, and seeing things that are interesting to them. We create experiences, infused with Jewish content, that combine music making, story time, and messy fun projects that tickle your tots and spark their imagination. Our Family Center provides a space for both you and your children to make friends and have meaningful experiences.

Emanuel Tots

Looking for a great experience for your little ones? Emanuel Tots is designed for parents with small children.

We currently offer several Shabbat experiences for families where we help engage your young child with the beauty and tradition of the week ending celebration. With Shabbat in the Park, Bim Bam Shabbat and Little Sparklers we give families with children the chance to sing, play, and come together and mingle.

As such, we are currently adapting our family center programming to be virtual. If you have any suggestions, questions, comments, etc. please email Karen Porper at
