Creating Connected Communities for Families with Young Children
(for congregations without Early Childhood Centers)

Parents of young children (age 0-6) today have many choices when seeking out deep and meaningful community connections. Synagogue communities, with or without early childhood centers, can be a gateway to lifelong Jewish commitment for parents and their young children.

In this Community of Practice, staff and lay leaders from congregations without early childhood centers learn together about key challenges and opportunities of engaging families with young children. Participants study best principles from across the field, and identify and execute a pilot experiment to scale up their efforts.

Registration is now closed for the current cycle of this CoP.
