Adult, Teen, and Family Education Programs

We also offer periodic education programs for both adults and the whole family, typically with a potluck meal and havdalah services and a study session.


Our family programs are designed for family members of all generations. They focus on a variety of themes and often incorporate storytelling and arts and crafts. We also have periodic programs and get-togethers for the congregation’s teens. Members of all ages get together once a month to cook and serve at the Westfield Soup Kitchen. The Rabbi also assists students and families who are preparing for Bar or Bat Mitzvah.To learn more, please email us ahavasachiminquiry@gmail.com, or call us at (413)642-1797.
