Activities for Tots and the Adults that Love Them
Monthly, tots of all ages and their families join us at Or Ami or at a park for an energetic Shabbat experience. We combine Jewish craft projects and challah making led by teen role models, and a story and Shabbat prayers led by our rabbis. Many include pizza and picnic dinners.
Our Mensch-ify family learning program on Sundays is learning for the entire family. A special tots group for nursery and preschoolers ensures that your younger family members are learning and having fun at the same time as you.
Or Ami has partnerships with three synagogue preschools: Shomrei Torah Synagogue (West Hills), Temple Adat Elohim (Thousand Oaks) and Temple Judea (Tarzana). Or Ami children may attend these preschools at the member rate, without having to join these synagogues.
K-3rd Grade Pajama Parties
Even the Rabbis and Cantor don jammies for these cozy gatherings that feature milk and cookies and Jewish stories.
Family Friendly Holiday Celebrations
Jewish holidays are fun and engaging for all ages at Or Ami. In addition to celebrations at the temple, we also provide resources to celebrate at home in a meaningful way.
With a picture window facing the bima (pulpit) and sound piped in, our children’s sanctuary provides a safe sound-proof space for young children and their parents. The Children’s Sanctuary is filled with toys, books and games to enjoy anytime you are in the synagogue. Parents can comfortably feed their children in this second home.
