Upcoming Programs

Our Mission

Family Engagement at Central Synagogue serves families with children from birth through age 22. Our programs facilitate Jewish experiences and inspire families from all backgrounds to seek out and create their own points of Jewish connection, both individually and together as a family.

Just as we acknowledge that each family is unique, we recognize that engagement in Jewish life is not one-size-fits-all and are committed to family programming that is inclusive, accessible, and fun. By creating welcoming, immersive, and diverse programs that transcend the physical walls of our synagogue, Family Engagement brings Jewish values to life, both in the home and in the larger world, and furthers the path of lifelong learning for each individual. 

Through participation in the community, our families create deep and lasting bonds both here at Central and beyond.
