Kids and Families at Ansche Chesed

Ansche Chesed thrives in large part because of the children and families in its midst. Introducing them to Jewish concepts, ideas and practices, and deepening the understanding and joy of those already excited by Jewish life and observance, are among the most gratifying activities for Ansche Chesed’s clergy and staff.

At Ansche Chesed, parents and children are never at a loss for activities that engage, educate and delight. Our Hebrew school offers a creative curriculum for different age groups; our three Shabbat morning services for children of different ages ensure that every child feels welcome and comfortable; our holiday celebrations, social events and other special programs provide fun, out-of-the-box experiences for families, young children and teens.

Check our 2023-2024 Family Programming calendar and Ansche Chesed’s weekly e-news for announcements of new events.
