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 contact ahavasachiminquiry@gmail.com, (413) 642-1797
