All are welcome at Shabbat Services, but children seem to especially enjoy our Shabbat B’Shir service. It is a song filled worship opportunity taking place at 6pm the second Friday of every month, November through June.
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, ans snacks!
(9:30 am – 10:30 am)
- Junior Congregation
For children ages 8–12
Where our youth become leaders – sing, celebrate, and even learn to chant from the Torah!
(10:30 am – 12:00 pm)
These services alternate on Saturday mornings and occur only when school is in session. Please check the Synagogue calendar for specific dates.
