PTBE TOTS (Age 6 and Under)

In the years before your child/ren are ready for a formal religious education, we know how important it is to give them positive, fun and lighthearted Jewish experiences. We invite parents with tots to join us for a variety of offerings for our littlest learners (typically best for children six and under). There is no fee to register for these activities.

Tot Shabbat

Tot Shabbat begins with a short, fun, interactive and song-filled service in the Sanctuary. Kids enjoy this introduction to Jewish prayer by playing musical instruments and dancing with stuffed Torahs. We always follow our service with snacks and playtime, a great opportunity for both kids and parents to get to know their friends at PTBE.
