At Congregation B’nai Tikvah, we believe in creating a warm, welcoming and nurturing environment that allows children to actively learn and explore Judaism through music, art, stories, and play. Our program is designed to introduce children to Jewish concepts and excite them by allowing their natural curiosity to lead their journey in exploring Judaism. We strive to achieve life long connections by building a strong community, bringing parents and families together.

All of our preschool programming is open to the Jewish community regardless of temple affiliation.
