Young Families and Friends
Our young families share a kid-friendly dinner and a Shabbat service, filled with songs, stories, and prayers on Kol Shabbat, the first Friday of the month. We welcome children of all ages, though this service is best suited for children in preschool through third grade. The cost for the dinner is $8 for adults and $5 for children. It’s a casual atmosphere that is perfect for the family with young children to share a Jewish experience with their temple community and socialize with other families.
Our wonderfully energetic teen organization (West Hartford Temple Youth – WHTY) organizes numerous social and socially conscious events throughout the year. Because Beth Israel fully appreciates its young members and realizes the critical importance of nurturing their Jewish identities and leadership potential, the WHTY President holds a seat on the Temple’s Board of Trustees.
