About Temple Tots

Temple Tots offers fun and meaningful programming and the chance to build community for families raising young children (birth through age six). By providing engaging, enriching, and joyful early experiences, we aim to create a foundation for a lifetime of connection to Judaism.

Families connect monthly at Tot Shabbat, typically held on the third Saturday of the month. Cantor Nancy Dubin’s age-appropriate service gives children a warm and welcoming introduction to Jewish music, prayers, Shabbat, holidays, ritual objects, and more. It’s also a time to dance with shakers, cuddle with parents, and hear a PJ Library story. After the service, the fun continues with a craft, socializing, food, and play in the gym.

Families are also invited to participate in mitzvah projects (service projects) and special events throughout the year. Past events included our summer picnic at Bay Park, a Pajama Havdalah, and a concert with singer-songwriter Eliana Light.

Join Temple Tots to learn, play, enjoy the camaraderie of other parents, and relax! We welcome a diversity of families, including interfaith families, and we welcome both members and nonmembers to participate in our activities. Most programs are free or low-cost. Temple members interested in shaping the direction of Temple Tots are invited to join our parent-led committee.
