A child’s Jewish learning begins at birth as he or she is welcomed into the home and synagogue. The Emanuel formally enters into your child’s Jewish learning through our preschool programs:

  • Bagels, Blocks and Beyond an exciting and accessible introduction to organized Jewish learning. In alignment with the family-centered tradition of our education department, it involves preschool children, their parents, and, often, grandparents. The program is from 10:30-noon on five Sunday mornings throughout the year, under the direction of the Early Childhood Coordinator. Dates for 5777 (2016-2017) are:  January 21 (Havdallah) February 5 (Tu’ B’shvat), March 12 (Purim).
  • ChallahPalooza:  Join us once each month during the school year for this inter-active Shabbat playtime program. We will sing songs, hear stories, play Jewish themed games, and join with the rest of the congregation Tot Shabbat2for Kiddush. This program is free of charge and open to the entire community. RSVPs appreciated at 860-233-2774. school@emanuelsynagogue.org. Dates for 5777 (2016-2017) are 1/28, 2/11, 3/4, 4/29, 5/13, 6/3.
