Shabbat Morning for All Ages
Shabbat is a time for children of all ages! Junior programming occurs every Saturday morning for pre-B’nai Mitzvah children in our congregation. Each program encourages the children to participate in a Shabbat experience filled with song, prayer and stories – the perfect way to celebrate Shabbat.
Every experience is tailored to meet the needs of each group and is supervised by our extraordinary clergy, teachers and musicians:
- Sing Along Shabbat
For children ages 0–5
Come for Shabbat songs, stories, dancing, and snacks!
(9:30 am – 10:00 am)
- Shabbat B’Yachad (”Shabbat Together”)
For children ages 0-7
An interactive Shabbat service with Torah reading, family activities, and snacks!

Where our youth become leaders – sing, celebrate, and even learn to chant from the Torah!
