Junior Congregation

Junior Congregation is a lively, participatory service for children ages 5–12. While prayer is always a part of youth groups, on select weeks we will also have Torah reading. Children learn Shearith Israel’s melodies and have opportunities to lead prayers, read Torah and perform mitzvot. On some weeks there are also raffles with prizes for attendance and participation. 

To sign up to lead a part in the service, email Mrs. Lisa Rohde
