Family School

Family School

Family School is held once a month in conjunction with Sunday sessions of Koven Religious School (KRS). It usually begins at 9:30am, when KRS begins. KRS parents (and often also the children) are encouraged to join Family School, both to further their Jewish education and to create community within KRS.

Although aimed at KRS parents and children, all are welcome at Family School.
