Today’s families are looking for friends, and for community. Early childhood teachers and directors are uniquely positioned to be “Family Ambassadors,” connecting families to
meaningful Jewish experiences that connect them to the core ideas and values of Jewish life, to other Jewish families, and to community. “Tot Shabbat” experiences have long been recognized as gateways for young Jewish families into Jewish life. The research of Emily Aronoff Teck reveals just how, and WHY, Tot Shabbat connects families to Jewish life, to other Jewish families, and to community.
