Early Childhood at Beth Tikvah

Our early childhood programs at Beth Tikvah Synagogue offer you and your child the opportunity to engage in meaningful Jewish activities and rituals while having fun and meeting other families. You do not need to be a member of Beth Tikvah Synagogue to participate, these programs are open to all. These programs are offered jointly with Congregation Bnai Shalom and sponsored in part by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Central Massachusetts.

Tot Shabbat

Tot Shabbat provides a warm, fun-filled, and accessible Shabbat experience for your entire family. For children from birth to age five and their parents, Tot Shabbat is led by experienced early childhood experts. Tot Shabbat includes a welcome art activity, often linked to an upcoming holiday. Children and families also gather for a brief, 30-minute service filled with song, prayer, movement, stories, and fun. A light children’s snack is served.
