Young Family Tefillah

Young Family Tefillah

Children 5 and under and their grown-ups (big siblings welcome, too!) are invited to celebrate Shabbat together with Rabbi Rose with joyful song, marching with stuffed Torahs, stories, and sometimes celebrating an upcoming holiday, too.  Services are free and open to the community; advance registration through the CBS website is required. We meet at 11:30 downstairs in Room 4/5 on the following dates: 9/25, 10/30, 12/4, 1/29, 2/19, 4/9, and 6/4.

Torah and Tots

Join us for a fun Shabbat morning activity! We will sing Hebrew songs, play games, and do some Shabbat friendly art work. The program is for young children ages 2-5. Parents are welcome to come as well. It will take place at 11:30 am in room 4/5.

This program meets every Shabbat morning during the academic year except when Young Family Tefillah (above) meets.

Note that Torah and Tots takes place in the same space as Shabbat babysitting. All kids in babysitting are invited to participate, as is anyone who wishes to join just for Torah and Tots.

Kid’s Kehillah

Kids Kehilla is a fun, interactive prayer service for children ages 6 – 11. We meet downstairs each Shabbat morning from 10:45 until 12:00 (or until the main service upstairs is complete) in room 3. During Kids Kehilla, children sing prayers, play games, have their own Torah service and more. We also have special services throughout the year (including Lego Kids Kehilla, Star Wars Kids Kehilla and Backwards Kids Kehilla!). Please join us for a fun-filled Shabbat morning!

Shabbat Babysitting

Want a safe, nurturing place to leave your children while you daven on Shabbat mornings? Great babysitters provide a safe, fun play time for young children (ages 1-3) during Shabbat morning services.  This program meets from 9:30am to 12:15pm every Shabbat morning in room 4/5.

Youth Minyan

At Congregation Beth Shalom’s Youth Minyan, post B’nai Mitzvah teens participate in this no adults allowed service that is led by teens. Youth Minyan gives them the opportunity to practice their synagogue skills, pray with their peers, and socialize over a delicious meal. Youth Minyan will meet 6-8 times in the 2021-2022 school year. Mark your calendars for our 2021-2022 dates: 10/2, 11/20,1/8, 2/5, 3/12, 5/7. Registration required as we transition back to in-person, socially distanced Shabbat Services from 10:30-12:30 in the Beit Midrash.

Everyone is welcome! The Shabbat programs above are offered free of charge but do require online registration. Have a question? Please contact our Director of Education.
