Anshe Emet is blessed with a strong, vibrant community of young families…

Families with children ages 8 and under are full participants in the life of Anshe Emet, and have a number of opportunities to socialize and engage in fun activities throughout the year. The Anshe Emet Young Families email group is a tremendous resource for finding out what is going on at Anshe Emet and in the community, and also for finding a nanny and swapping baby stuff.

To join, send us an email to: AEYF-subscribe@yahoogroups.com or join our Facebook Group!

Maxine Handelman is Anshe Emet’s Director of Family Life & Learning and can be contacted at mhandelman@ansheemet.org | 773-868-5121.
