Garinim (Little Seeds) – Families with Children 5 Years Old and Under
We are a fun, friendly, and active community of young families who get together for various early childhood family programs. Our events range from holiday and Shabbat celebrations to play dates to Shabbat dinners and social events. The Frankel Religious School (FRS) also offers a weekly preschool option on Sunday mornings for families looking to get a head start on their child’s religious education. Garinim is open to members and non-members. Join us to get a taste of the sweetness at HNT.

Both Garinim and Shtilim serve as feeder programs into our robust community. Activities include visits to the JFS food bank, hikes, Shabbat and special holiday programming. Shtilim is open to members and non-members.
