Shabbat Groups

On Shabbat, we believe our children should learn to pray as well as develop a deeper appreciation for Jewish learning. Shabbat and Holiday Youth Groups for children aged 5-12 begin at 10:00 am.  Children meet in the Children’s Library, followed by Junior Congregation (and on select weeks- Assigned Junior Congregation) in the Small Synagogue. Our creative Youth Group Leaders, Shayna and Gideon, lead the children through and exploration of the parasha and other engaging activities on Jewish themes.
