North Shore Temple Emanuel

a Progressive Jewish Congregation

NSTE Parents Group

Our NSTE Shabbat Parents Group meets on Friday mornings at 10.30 am, currently once a month.  Challah and snacks are provided!

One of our aims is to help create a strong foundation of Jewish identity for children before they start school. Children can explore Jewish ideas and learning, or just simply have fun running around with other children! We will be doing the Shabbat blessings and activities based on the Jewish holidays,  We have toys and activities appropriate for all ages from 0-5. 

NSTE Parents Group also aims to foster connections between families who have a shared interest in raising children in a Jewish context.  We recognise that parents of very young children can feel isolated and need the support of others who understand our unique situation.  At NSTE Parents Group we offer support and encourage anyone who is feeling isolated or overwhelmed to come and say hello!

Current and prospective members of NSTE are most welcome.

We welcome  mums, dads, grandparents  and carers as well as both Jewish and interfaith families.
