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.
