The Dorshei "Friends and Family" program offers engaging opportunities for children (age 12 and under) and families of Dorshei Emet throughout the year. We are also in the process of starting a Youth Group, Trailblazers, for teens 13-17. Our community nurtures connection among families committed to our egalitarian and progressive values while our programs offer creative cultural, educational and spiritual content.  The Dorshei Emet community welcomes interfaith families and celebrates Jewish people from all backgrounds.

We're always looking for parents to join our Parents Committee and work with the Coordinator on exciting programming for our children. If you are curious about our program or would like to join the Committee, we invite you to learn more about us by contacting the shul office at 514-486-9400.

Family-Friendly Facilities

Children are welcome in all our services, and we pride ourselves on embracing family participation. Through attending services with their families, children learn about Shabbat and holidays, hear the sacred music of our tradition, and learn how to behave in a sanctuary setting. Please be sure your child always knows where you are, and help them to understand that the sanctuary is a sacred space.

The Toddler Room, on our second floor balcony overlooking the main sanctuary, is always open for infants and small children accompanied by an adult. Toys and games are available, and the room is equipped with audio feed from the sanctuary.

Changing tables are located in the washroom on the second floor, outside of the Children’s Activity Room, and in the men’s and women’s washrooms downstairs. If you are looking for a quiet place to nurse or feed your baby, feel free to use the Library, located on the second floor outside of the Toddler Room.
