Family Education

The Family Education Program under the auspices of the Religious School is designed to support and encourage families to find Jewish ways to increase knowledge of Judaica, increase community affiliation and help people of all ages find their own spiritual journey.

Family Education here at FVJC- Emek Shalom is an ongoing experience for our families, where parents are regularly invited to participate in activities, worship, and events. These events, led by our clergy team and teachers provide opportunities for families to learn and grow together, building their knowledge of Jewish rituals, observance, customs, values, and ethics. Our programs nurture a feeling of community within the congregation.
