Emanuel Synagogue has a vibrant, active community of families with young children who are welcome at all synagogue activities and services. Additionally, we have an Early Childhood Center open and available for children and parents together during all service times. Our Early Childhood Center provides a play-space with games, puppet theater, dress-up area, baby area, reading corner, and more. Babysitting is offered for preschool age children during select high holiday hours.
