Family Center – Family Programs

The Family Center collaborates with other great organizations such as PJ Library, the Jewish Federation’s Concierge for Young Families, Saul Mirowitz Jewish Community School, Epstein Hebrew Academy, Chabad, the various Jewish preschools and more to bring you the very best in family programming. Our family events usually fall on Sundays for working parents, and most of them are free of charge and centered around the Jewish holidays in a way that is accessible for small children.
