Youth Services

On Shabbat morning there is a variety of services for children and families. Consult the newsletter or the weekly e-mail for the schedule of services on any particular week. The services include:

  • Shabbat Katan: This spirited service is designed for preschool-aged children and their families. Led by  music teacher Susan Sacks and parents, this interactive Shabbat experience includes stories, prayers, songs, and a brief Torah reading. This service will typically be held on the second Shabbat of the month in the Youth Lounge at 11:00 a.m. A Shabbat Katan lunch will follow. Open to the community. 
  • Junior Congregation: This service, for 3rd through 5th graders, is led by Debbi Dunn Solomon. Debbi brings innovative and inspiring ideas to the service. The children actively participate in leading the service. It is an excellent way to help them learn the Shabbat prayers in preparation for B'nai Mitzvah study. Junior Congregation takes place at 10:30 a.m. in the Beit Midrash each Shabbat that Religious School is in session. 

Periodically there are other services offered on Shabbat; they will be announced in the newsletter and on the calendar page in advance.
