Mishpacha means “family” in Hebrew


Often times, families join a synagogue in order to connect with other families with similar values and religious beliefs as well as with a hope of being part of a greater Jewish community. For this reason, Mishpacha (programming for families with children ages 5-12) and Mini Mishpacha (programming for families with children ages 0-4) were created to build that community for families at Temple Sholom.  And what better way to build that community then to engage in fun, age-appropriate programming for the entire family such as:

  • Shabbat Programs (Family Friendly Fridays & Tot Shabbats)
  • Sholom Sleep Under
  • Ice Cream Socials in the Park
  • Mitzvah Projects

Mishpacha works to provide entertaining and engaging programming for adult family members too. These programs range from purely social to a mix of social and educational. If you are a parent looking to connect with other parents at the Temple who have similar age children, we have multiple programs for you such as:

  • Moms BYOB Dinners
  • Moms Nights Out
  • Couples Nights Out
  • Empowering Parents Workshops

The overall goal of Mishpacha is to welcome, engage and give Temple Sholom members, who are a part of this large and diverse group of families, the opportunity to build a community of “mishpacha” within their synagogue.
