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 firstname.lastname@example.org, (413) 642-1797
