Based upon the success of our current Family Discovery programs, we are pleased to offer
a full menu of Family Discovery programs for the entire K – 6 population.
 

What is Family Discovery?

Family Discovery is a Jewish learning and living program built upon the Family Education and Group model. Families or a parent/child come together several times a year for joint learning, Jewish experiences and Shabbat/Holiday celebrations. 4th - 6th Grade learners come to the Temple additionally once a week for Hebrew and participate our 4th and 5th Grade Retreat in February, and 6th Grade Families participate in the 6th Grade Family Shabbaton in November.

This information has been newly updated in June as we continually build and plan these programs. To register for any of these programs, click here.

KESHER Family Chavurah
 
with Rabbi Leora Frankel and members of the LT Clergy and Education Team

Building upon the success of 2018-2019’s K – 2 Family Discovery Group, this group has many families where multiple children of different ages participate and experience Judaism all together as full family units. For those families with older learners who plan to become Bar or Bat Mitzvah through the Temple, 4th and 5th graders are highly encouraged to also participate in the 2-day-a-week LT Explores program and minimally  expected to attend the weekly Hebrew class on Wednesdays. Grade 6 and Grade 7 siblings preparing to become Bar or Bat Mitzvah through the Temple, are required to attend the full Grade 6 LT Explores or Grade 7 program and are always invited to participate as Chavurah members with their family. 

Our KESHER Family Chavurah will gather together for:
• One monthly Family Learning Program on Saturdays or Sundays (Click here for tentative schedule)
• One monthly Shabbat or Holiday Celebration (at times with the wider LT Community)
