Temple Tots









Welcome to Temple Tots, Temple Aliyah's family programming for parents & their kids ages 0-5!


This is going to be another incredible year of friendships and fun programming, and we look forward to meeting you and your family at our Jewish families and tots programs this year. Temple Tots has exciting, fun, educational and age-appropriate Jewish family programs for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers!   Our interactive and inspirational activities are welcoming and educational for families with young children up to age 5.  Temple Tots at Temple Aliyah is the place to meet other Jewish families with young children  in the area.  Our families come from Needham, Wellesley, Newton, Dover, Westwood, Medfield, Dedham, and beyond. 

Our programming is organized by parents with young children, and led by our Shabbat Educator, Devora Rohr.  We work closely with Temple Aliyah's Director of Early Education, Debbi Fendell, who also leads our innovative Gan Aliyah Preschool.

Members and new families are always welcome at Temple Tots. Young Family Membership rates are affordable — call us to learn more at 781-444-8522.
