What is KEF?? (KEF = fun in Hebrew)
KEF is HBT’s version of ‘afterschool programs’, housed right here at Temple! Each program is active and hands on, and offers our children to take part in creative, skill-building activities with an added Jewish and/or Hebrew taste! It’s KEF!!! KEF is open to ALL children in our congregation, as well as non-member friends!
KEF takes place on Sundays from 11:30am – 12:30pm, for children in JK through Grade 1.
KEF runs in 8 or 9 week sessions, and each session is $140/child ($165 for non-members). Pick a different activity for each session!

- Session 1: September 20, 2015 – November 22, 2015
