Petaluma's Inclusive Center for Jewish Life

Family & Kids

Gan Israel Preschoolers

We offer opportunities for our youngsters to be immersed in Jewish life. Our Youth Education Program has opportunities for your children’s lifelong connection to Judaism – from preschool, to religious education, to teenage and post B’nai Mitzvah activities. 

We also regularly hold events and activities for families to share Jewish culture together. From Family Shabbat to holiday celebrations or adventures into the outdoors, we are continually striving to get our youngest members of our community involved, to build relationships and to learn about Judaism.

Please contact us with any questions or ideas about how BIJC can better serve our community's families.
