Dor Chadash is a group of supportive, fun families who believe in getting children integrated into synagogue life early. Through amazing social and religious activities, we get little ones excited about Jewish home life, holidays and community work. Whether it's through our welcoming High Holy Days services or our uber-casual Erev Shabbat programs, Dor Chadash brings together young families who bond over the beautiful - and at times challenging - efforts of creating a Jewish life for young children, toddlers and babies.
We host incredible, music-filled parties that will get little Yiddishe tushies dancing. We also organize age-appropriate community service programs and a few events just for the grown-ups, including thought-provoking lectures for parents.
Some of our upcoming programs include:
