In addition to our Judaica and Hebrew curriculum for Kindergarten through 10th graders, YESh also provides exciting programs for designed for families and students in order to enhance their Judaic experience.

Young Family Engagement

Shabbat ShaPlay is a fun and interactive singing service led by Miss Jane, our music teacher, one Shabbat morning per month. Families with children 5 years old and younger are invited to join us at Sea Gate Park on Shabbat morning for one hour, where we celebrate Shabbat with fun songs, musical instruments, and challah. Each family is provided with a special picnic blanket and picnic bag filled with snacks, challah and musical instruments for their child(ren) to play while we sing along with Miss Jane. Check the calendar for dates.

Shalom Yeladim! is a program for parents and their little ones (2-4 year olds). One Sunday per month during YESh, parents and kiddos will meet and learn about Shabbat and the Jewish holidays. Through crafts, play, yoga, music and fun, kids will begin to learn about Judaism in a hands-on and experiential way. Parents are invited to join their children on this engaging Jewish educational journey.
