Join Temple Anshe Amunim (TAA) for its on-going Family Education program for meaningful and enriching Jewish experiences for youth, families, and the entire community. 

In the era of COVID-19, we view the challenges presented by social distancing as opportunities to reimagine Jewish life and learning. The ways we have envisioned our Family Education for next year looks to adapt to our current realities and reimagine how we connect with our youth.

Students will enjoy a monthly rotation of experiences in the classroom, in the sanctuary, and outdoors. Unless otherwise specified, all events are able to be held within the participants’ homes, in TAA’s virtual space, or at TAA in line with strict social distancing policies and practices. We will be leading our children and community through a monthly schedule divided into four categories: art and cooking; learning of prayers and blessings; a tiyul (field trip) experience; a monthly family story time for younger children; or a quarterly tikkun olam project for teenagers.

This year we will be offering parents a Jewish learning experience, with a once a month Jewish book club just for them. The book will be announced at the beginning of the month, and parents will meet at the end of the month.  Attendance by video conference may become a popular option regardless of COVID-19.

Our program is designed to educate our children and provide the possibility of connecting students with our greater TAA community. Art, baking and prayer projects often enhance congregational efforts to celebrate our holidays together, providing frequent opportunities for members of all ages to learn from each other and celebrate as one TAA family.  

All of the proposed programming this year is built for socially distant or completely remote implementation with the flexibility to transition to in-person implementation. This nimble approach includes plans for strict social distancing, picking up of materials, and both synchronous and asynchronous online learning plans. During synchronous online learning, we will create smaller group environments with breakout Zoom rooms based on age or interest, and asynchronous activities will offer levels of engagement for a variety of ages.
