Family and Youth Shabbat Services

Havdalah 3Check the calendar for the current schedule of services.

Nitzanim: Birth to Kindergarten – Nitzanim meets the second, fourth, and fifth Shabbat of the month from 11:00 am-noon in the Multipurpose Room. The highly interactive service includes Shabbat songs, abridged prayers from the Nitzanim Siddur, the Torah Service complete with processional, and a story pertaining to a current holiday or the week’s parsha.

Gan Shabbat: Kindergarten to Second Grade – Gan Shabbat meets the first and third Shabbat of the months from 10:30 to 11:30 in the Multipurpose Room. The goals are to increase familiarity with the prayers and to connect to the parsha with a story.

Shitufim: Third and Fourth Grades – The Shitufim minyan meets the second and fourth Shabbat of the month from 10:30 to 11:30 in the Zahler Social Hall.

Junior Congregation: Fifth and Sixth Grades – Junior Congregation meets every Shabbat during the school year at 10:00 am in the library.

Teen Service: Post B’nai Mitzvah – The Teen Minyan meets on the first Shabbat of every month during the school year from 10:00 to noon in the Tel Aviv room. This is a cool service without parents, conducted by and for post b’nai mitzvah teens, with a great kiddush afterward.
