Or Shalom offers a number of programs for families of young children, Bar and Bat-mitzvah age and beyond.
Children of all ages are welcome to participate, along with parents, in engaging programs that feature fun and food, and immersion into relevant and inclusive Judaism, from free informal social activities to Shabbat and holiday programs.
We seek parent input and value your program ideas. Please contact us with questions and suggestions firstname.lastname@example.org.
For a complete list of this year’s programs, see our Children and Family Programming Page.
We welcome your son or daughter’s Bar or Bat-Mitzvah with Or Shalom, and have a complete B’nei Mitvah Program.
New Ways for Young Families to Connect
Based on feedback, parents of young children wanted ways to communicate regularly and get to know one another as well as a way to schedule regular gatherings outside of our monthly Shabbat Sheli program, including in your homes, and in outdoor spaces in Metro Vancouver.
- We’ve set up an easy-to-use listserv via Yahoo Groups that will facilitate this parent-led connection. Click here to subscribe to the group or send an email to orshalomyoungfamilies-subscrib
- We’ve also created a Google calendar called Or Shalom Young Families. Want a way to coordinate hosting events, say every third week of the month? You can use this calendar to schedule events amongst yourselves as far in advance as you like. Please email Shelley if you’d like to be given permission to add events to the calendar.
