Connecting Families with Young Children

Temple De Hirsch Sinai proudly offers opportunities for fun, meaningful Jewish experiences for families with at least one child age seven or younger. Events and gatherings take place on both our Bellevue and Seattle campuses as well as out in the city at parks, museums, and community centers, too. All are welcome to join us, whether you’re a Temple member, JRM (Jennifer Rosen Meade) Preschool family, or still looking around. Check back often to see new events or gatherings added to our calendar.
