Chizuk Amuno Congregation

Young Families of Chizuk Amuno (YF of CA)

Here at Chizuk Amuno, we are fortunate to have a vibrant community of families with younger children – the Young Families of Chizuk Amuno, or YF of CA.  As a Young Families community, we come together regularly for Shabbat services and lunches, holiday programs, social events, and more!

Please join us for one of our upcoming programs – they’re a great way to meet other families, share special times together, and be welcomed into the greater Chizuk Amuno family.

Join us most every Shabbat for a lively service geared toward families with school-age children. Children have the opportunity to put their learning into practice by leading parts of the service, learning new melodies, and exploring Shabbat teachings and stories.

*Each week after services, we come together for Kiddush and open play time in the gym.  Once per month, we also enjoy a festive Shabbat lunch together!
