Beth-El Congregation

Family Activities

Beth-El Congregation knows that living in Texas means it takes a little extra effort to raise a proud Jewish child – one who is comfortable with his religious upbringing in a town or school where he is a minority. We believe it helps when Jewish families feel connected with each other.

Our mission is to nurture a fun and stimulating environment in which families of all ages enjoy social time together and develop strong bonds. Family Activities welcomes parents and grandparents of Beth-El Congregation to enjoy a fun, casual program throughout the year designed to foster a sense of belonging and fellowship.


Tot Shabbat

Every Jewish holiday, especially Shabbat, is a time of giving thanks, appreciating God, family, and friends. Please join us for Tot Shabbat with songs, prayers, Shabbat blessings, a story, snack, and a place where a kid can be a kid when they pray to God.


Tot Shabbats are once per month on Fridays,
from 5:30 to 7:00 pm
in the Beth-El Chapel.
