Families with Young Children

Do you have a child 7 years or younger?

Then CBS Families With Young Children (FYC) is for you!

We host numerous social, cultural and spiritual events during the year, enabling Jewish families with newborn children through 2nd grade to interact with one another (older siblings are always welcome). We invite potential members to come and get to know us!
