Programs for Families

Just like you, we value family time. At Hamakom we offer a broad and changing array of special Family Programs that allow you to learn, grow, explore and celebrate together. We offer Shabbat dinners, family learning days, holiday celebrations (such as the Sukkot Family Festival, Taste of Hanukkah Family Celebration, and Family Havdalah), and annual events such as Mitzvah Day, the Purim Shpiel (Play), and Purim Carnival.

Holiday Celebrations

Celebrate with gusto! We know that our young children need to get up and move. It's too much to ask them to sit through services and sermons. Our young family holidays are all designed with that in mind.

From special stories with our rabbis and songs that are familiar, kids are welcome to bounce, sing, and celebrate their way through the Jewish year. A picnic on Sukkot, dancing with the Torah on Simchat Torah, and a costume parade on Purim add to the fun! And of course, friends, parents, and grandparents are encouraged to join in these celebrations!

Bim-Bom Shabbat Services

The third Friday of each month is Family Shabbat at Hamakom! Join us for a different themed Bim-Bom Shabbat service at 5:15pm on the third Friday of the month, geared toward preschool-aged families. Stay for a delicious family-friendly Shabbat dinner (RSVP required) following Bim-Bom Services. If your children are elementary-aged, we encourage you to come for a pizza dinner at 5:45pm and stay for Every Third Shabbat Services at 7:30pm.
