Preschoolers and their families are invited to join our clergy on the bimah as we welcome in the weekly day of rest.

Kesher Shabbat: Connecting Elementary Aged Children to Each Other and Shabbat

Did your family love Tot Shabbat? The first Friday of the month isn’t just for tots anymore! Join us for Kesher Shabbat, which continues the connection of our elementary aged kids and their families to each other and Shabbat!


Every first Friday of the Month beginning on January 5, 2018 at 6:00 p.m.

We hope to see you there to enjoy the same family friendly programming of Tot Shabbat you have grown to love, aimed at slightly older children. But, of course, we will still begin with a complimentary pizza dinner!

For more information or to RSVP, please contact Naomi Segal at naomi@templejeremiah.org or at 847.441.5760 ext. 112.

(Read how Kesher Shabbat came about in the December 2017 Covenant.)

Parent-Tot Program

Pre-Kindergarten Class/Parent-Tot Program
Sunday mornings throughout the school year, form 9:00-10:45 a.m.
For children in the year prior to kindergarten. This wonderful program is an opportunity for your child to participate in an introduction to religious school. Our goal is for children to have the chance to become acclimated to religious school while sharing the experience with their parents. Each class has its own theme: The High Holy Days, Shabbat, Passover, etc. Each class is an hour and forty-five minutes and includes stories, art projects, music, cooking, an introduction to Hebrew words and a snack.

Purim Celebrations

Each year, Temple Jeremiah families gather to celebrate Purim at our Purim Schpiel and Carnival. Kids (and adults too!) dress up in their favorite costumes and enjoy a fanciful rendition of the Purim story put on by our Temple Jeremiah clergy and members. Each year the story is told to a different theme – whether it’s Beauty and the Beast or Mary Poppins – it is fun for the whole family! Following our Purim Schpiel, temple families enjoy our carnival filled with games, prizes, moon bounce, food, and fun!

Join us this year on March 4th, for a full morning of fun!
