Temple Emanu-El's Babies and Bagels Club is a monthly program for families with young children. We do various family activities around town or at the Temple, we play, discuss parenting and ethical issues, explore Jewish holidays and values, eat, create and have fun together. Babies and Bagels events are open to all, and the events are designed to appeal to both younger and older children alike.
The Babies & Bagels Club is provided by the Ruth F. and Samuel H. Cohen Outreach Program of Temple Emanu-El.
Everyone is welcome - Temple members and non-members, Jewish and non-Jewish. Most events are free (donations are always welcomed). Please call (520) 327-4501 for more information and to let us know how many are coming.
