Outside of the classroom, Or L'Atid offers a wide variety of family programs for all ages, providing parents and children with opportunities to come together and learn. Aside from our Shabbat programs - including Shabbat & Me, Family Shabbat Experience, Torah Tots, Family Shabbat Dinner and Family Havdallah - we offer a number of Sunday afternoon Family Learning programs, allowing children and adults to deeper their connection with Judaism and our community.
