JTot

(Children up to age 6 and their families)

JTot offers opportunities for families to connect and form bonds through local fun, joyous, educational, spiritual, musical and social Jewish experiences all year round! Shabbat your thing? Try Shabbat in Bloom, a Spring and Summer parks program or get out with your family on a Saturday night in the Winter and join your community for a Havdalah PJ party! Not sure what your Jewish ‘thing’ is? You’ve come to the right place – Family Connectors in communities around Greater MetroWest can guide you and your family to identify the next step – or first step – along your Jewish journey!  Some families start a new Jewish holiday tradition, join a synagogue, become a member of a JCC or choose the right Jewish preschool or summer camp…we can help you identify what make most sense for you and your family.
