Shabbat Groups

On Shabbat, we believe our children should learn to pray as well as develop a deeper appreciation for Jewish learning. At 10:00 am on Shabbat, children ages 5 – 12 gather in the Elias Room for a fun curriculum of educational and entertaining activities connected to the parasha of the week and other Jewish themes, created by our Youth Group Leader and Programming Coordinator, Nat Bernstein, and Youth Group Leader, Daniela Bernstein. At 10:30 am, the children come together for Junior Congregation, a lively, participatory service in the Little Synagogue, (after which they return to the Elias Room with their group leader until the end of services). For a list of parts your child may lead in Jr. Congregation, click here.

Omer Board

Shearith Israel’s “Omer Board” dates back to the Mill Street Synagogue of 1730, and may indeed go back to the early years of the Congregation’s history.
