Yad B’Yad integrates Jewish culture and holidays and an introduction to Hebrew words and prayers. Our goal is to provide a safe, warm, loving and nurturing environment infused with Jewish values where children six weeks of age through five years can grow emotionally, socially, cognitively, intellectually, physically and spiritually and develop into lifelong learners. Yad B’Yad provides an opportunity for young children to play, learn and grow together in a rich Jewish play-based environment.
Our closely knit community of teachers, children and parents is an integral part of the Temple Emanuel congregation. Families with young children have the opportunity to share in Temple life including monthly First Friday Family Tot Shabbat celebrations, young children’s services for the High Holy Days, and free Jewish book club subscriptions from the national PJ Library program. Everyone is welcome at the many Temple-wide activities and holiday celebrations.
