A community of families with children 0-5 creating lasting friendships, Jewish connection and memories together.
What is a mensch?
A mensch is an upright citizen who lives out our Jewish values in daily life. A mensch is exactly who you want your child to be! A mensch is someone to admire and emulate, someone of noble character.
Who can be a Mini Mensch?
Mini Mensches are families with children ages 0-5. This program is free and open to all in our community. You do not have to be a member of Congregation Beth Israel to join Mini Mensches.
What does a Mini Mensch do?
Tot Shabbat (all ages): A sweet 30 minute Saturday morning service with CBI’s clergy, music, crafts and snacks! We hold these on the first and third Saturday of each month.
Special Holiday programming specifically for families with young children
Flow Room (Ages 0-3): Drop-in style programming during our Religious School on Sunday mornings. Each morning begins with a family service then fun activities (like music, dancing, and sing language) in our flow room for parents and children together.
Classes offered for parents and grandparents of young children that are specific to the challenges and day to day things you face (like time management and visioning).
More is being added all the time! We provide programming based on the needs and wants of our community. If you’d like to see a certain type of event, let us know. We’d be happy to help make it happen!
