Early Childhood Education

The goal of our early childhood programs is to increase family connections to the congregation and to regular practice, incorporating Jewish tenets and ritual within the home and family. Many of our Early Childhood programs and all community events are open to all. Connect with other Congregation B'nai Shalom families with young children for discussion and play dates.

                  Garinim Sunday Preschool Program!       

GARINIM 2022-23!

Our Garinim (Seeds) program meets on Sunday mornings from 8:30 AM to 11:30 AM and is available to members and non-members of Congregation B'nai Shalom. The cost for the program is $400 for the year.  Children will be with our expert, long-time preschool teacher Nancy Rotatori and one or two experienced teen assistants.  

In our preschool classroom, your child’s curiosity and passions will be nurtured with Jewish learning experiences and Jewish celebrations all taking place in the context of synagogue life. We support the “whole child” — including social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development. We offer indoor and outdoor structured and unstructured play, Hebrew language learning, basic Jewish skills in prayer and holiday observance, a specialist in early childhood Jewish music, and so much more!

If you would like to discuss our program via phone call, please get in touch with Rabbi Eiduson at 508-366-7191 Ext. 204.  If you are interested in our program, go to, fill out the application, and our Executive Director, Stephen Winer will be in touch.

PJ Library

PJ Library is a program of the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, made possible through partnerships with philanthropists and local Jewish organizations. Today, families in hundreds of communities across the United States and Canada are able to explore the timeless core values of Judaism through books and music. Through a partnership between Congregation B’nai Shalom and PJ Library, we mail high-quality Jewish children’s literature and music to our families on a monthly basis – free of charge.

All Congregation B’nai Shalom member families with children from age six-months through eight years of age are welcome to enroll.
