Family Experiences

HNT offers child and family programming that are fun, active, and developmentally appropriate. Connect with your child, and watch how your child connects with their Judaism!

FamilyExperiencesSimchat Shabbat (The Joy of Shabbat)
This monthly interactive Friday night experience was created especially for our families with children ages newborn to five-years-old. Welcome Shabbat with family and friends, sing favorite songs, and dance, then enjoy a child-inspired community-style dinner.

Shabbat for Kids
Once a month, kids grade school age and younger are invited to Shabbat events that encourage them to build Shabbat community through song, game, stories, and creative movement. Each program is specifically tailored to the age level of the participants. Curious about Shabbat for Kids? Click here for our wiki page!
