Friends and Family

DORSHEI FRIENDS AND FAMILY PROGRAM

The Dorshei "Friends and Family" program offers engaging opportunities for children (age 12 and under) and families of Dorshei Emet throughout the year.  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.

Our devoted parent committee welcomes those wanting to take an active role in shaping the children’s program in our community..  If you are curious about our program, we’d love to invite you to learn more about us!  Please contact 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.
