Age appropriate Shabbat programming for children to experience the spiritual, moral and ethical principles of Judaism through Shabbat activities. It is our belief that Shabbat should be a meaningful time for children and their parents. It is our hope that children will be able to experience community either by participating in the Shabbat Club program or by joining their parents during services in the sanctuary. Babysitting is provided on the weeks when there isn’t a children’s program for elementary aged children and a toddler room* with age appropriate toy and games is also available. *Parents are required to stay with their children in the Toddler Room as there are no babysitters provided.
