Families With Children


JFFS has a strong commitment to future generations, and especially families with children from whom a connection to their Jewish roots and communal support can be vitally important.


Whether you are looking to meet other Jewish parents and kids, engage in Jewish activities and experiences, connect to the community or share Jewish values with your children, JFFS can help.


Come enjoy fun, interactive events, play groups, book readings and more, or join a group for moms or welcome a new baby to our community! Not seeing what you are looking for? Contact us and let us know - we're always happy to help.
