Temple Emanuel’s Dor Chadash group is for our youngest fans, families with children aged five and under.  Our programs include art projects, Jewish-themed stories, holiday celebrations, kosher kid-friendly snacks, and opportunities for parents and children to connect with each other and with Judaism in fun, exciting and energetic ways. All events are open to the Community! Join us!

Many of our programs are done in conjunction with our preschool.

We also offer on-going classes such as baby boot camp, little beats music class, stroller walks, parenting classes and more! For more information, please contact our Dor Chadash Coordinator Andrea Shapiro at (617) 558-8124.

Temple Emanuel Preschool is fortunate to have a very active PTA. They help us build community, provide ways for parents to get involved, support teachers, welcome new students, host open houses, organize mitzvah projects and plan holiday celebration events.
