Jewish Family engagement

Jewish Family engagement

However you define your Jewish family, let us help you find community and develop meaningful Jewish experiences for you and your children. Join us at the EDCJCC for monthly Tot Shabbat programs, year-round holiday celebrations, and opportunities for service learning and community-building around Jewish traditions and values. Plus, connect with other parents raising Jewish children in your neighborhood through our JFamily Ambassadors Program.

About JFamily

If your family is raising a Jewish newborn or child up to 6 years old, one of our JFamily Ambassadors is here to help you get connected! Your neighborhood JFamily Ambassador is ready to meet with you and your family over coffee (our treat!), at a play space, at a park, or virtually to learn about you and your interests. Each family will also receive a welcome gift of our favorite gear! If you are interested in meeting your JFamily Ambassador, please fill out this short survey, and we will be in touch soon.

This program is brought to you by the Edlavitch DCJCC and funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and The United Jewish Endowment Fund.Jewish Federation Logo

Pajama Havdalah
Jan 29 @ 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm

This is a pajama party to say goodbye to Shabbat and hello to a great new week. Families will participate in the traditional Havdalah candle lighting, munch down on some tasty treats, and have a great time doing an art project and participate in bed time meditations. Don’t forget to wear your Pajamas.

This event is best for kids 5 – 8 years old and only open to those that are full vaccinated.
This event will take place INSIDE the EDCJCC.

Effective September 1, all visitors over the age of 12 entering the EDCJCC’s building are required to show proof of vaccination. Participants at outdoor events will not be checked for vaccination status, but it is our hope that regardless of where we gather, we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our community.
