Youth & Family

Programs for members from birth to 22 years old

During the physical shutdown necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, we continue to offer a variety of virtual programs that facilitate Jewish experiences and inspire families, from all backgrounds, to seek out and create their own points of Jewish connection, both individually and as a family unit.

Come Together to Shabbat & Schmooze this Summer

Take advantage of new virtual weekly Shabbat groups with other Central members.

Bring meaning to your Shabbat celebrations this summer and find different ways to come together and connect with fellow members and their families by joining one of our new, virtual Summer, Shabbat & Schmooze groups. These congregant-led groups are open to all Central members—singles, couples, families, and adults of all ages. Whether you choose to join a group with existing friends, or use this as an opportunity to create new friendships, these groups are a wonderful way to stay connected and bring additional meaning to Shabbat each week.

Details of various groups, including start dates and meeting times, are listed here. The groups will meet weekly for six weeks. We ask that you sign up by Wednesday, July 1.
