Family Connection

Family Programs 

Sundays 8:45 am - 11:00 am

Lifelong Connections. Sacred Community.
Shared Jewish Learning Experiences.

Amongst the many wonderful aspects of our Religious School is our grade-wide family programs. We believe that our students can have a richer religious school experience when they have oppourtunities to learn with their families.

Our programs include a variety of different activities for parents and their children that are engaging, accessible, and interesting.

For more information, contact Rabbi PJ Schwartz at pjschwartz@tiwestport.org  or (203) 227-1293 ext. 304.

Looking Ahead

Some of the most challengeing questions we receive from children are those about God. Does God exist? Why do bad things happen to good people? Why can't I see God? Perhaps what is more difficult than the questions themselves is determining how to best answer them! We will explore the answers to these questions, as well as others, by reflecting upon our own God beliefs and determine effective ways for these conversations about God with our children to occur.
