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.

If you have questions or would like to get involved, contact Sarah Sklare, our Young Families Engagement Coordinator:

Third Fridays – Shabbat Junior

5-7pm, Bellevue Campus

Join us in welcoming Shabbat family-style! This service is geared toward families with children in elementary school and younger, and will include singing, storytelling, and movement. We’ll begin the evening with activities and dinner, and then celebrate Shabbat in community. Although the service will primarily be focused on the younger crowd, everyone is of course welcome!

Young Families Community Shabbat

Seattle Campus Youth Lounge
10-11am, second Saturday of the month

Monthly opportunities to play, learn, pray and connect as a family. Each Shabbat service has a specific theme on which we’ll focus our learning and celebration! These are on the second Saturday of every month, and take place at 10 AM in the Temple De Hirsch Sinai Seattle Youth Lounge.

Beginning October 20th, Bellevue & Seattle

Are you or someone you know expecting a new addition to the family? Temple has partnered with PEPS (Program for Early Parent Support) to offer groups to the Jewish community. This fall we are planning to hold daytime and evening groups for families with newborns, at both our Seattle and Bellevue campuses.
