Torah and Tots
Join our 2019-2020 Shinshinim 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.
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!
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.
This amazing monthly youth led service (no adults allowed! Only post B’nai Mitzvah teens!) is an incredible place to make new friends, enjoy delicious food, and practice your service leading and Torah skills! Youth lead every aspect of the service from Shacharit to our Power Musaf! Then, we join together for lunch and some socializing. Youth Minyan meets 6-8 Shabbat mornings per year from 10:15am to Noonish in the Beit Midrash (Library) at Beth Shalom. No sign up required, just mark your calendar for the 2019-2020 dates: 9/14, 10/5, 11/16, 1/11, 2/22, 3/28, 5/16. Questions? Want to sign up to lead or read? Contact Jeremy Rose.
