Tot Shabbat meets at 11:00 AM, usually on the first and third Shabbats of the month (please check the Temple calendar for exact dates). This service is a one-hour long celebration of Shabbat with singing and dancing intended for toddlers, preschoolers and their parents. It is led by the Rabbis and by our community members. It includes basic prayers, a Torah march, and a story. We conclude with hallah and grape juice, and then join the main congregation for Adom Olam and a Kiddush Lunch. This service is free and open to all (non-members are encouraged to join us!); and no RSVP is necessary. See our schedule for the 2019-2020 Year.
This year, Mini Minyan and Junior Congregation have been combined to form Minyan L’Noar!

Family Minyan is now “The Learning Minyan!” The Learning minyan is family service geared towards families with children in kindergarten through sixth grade.

The Learning Minyan will met from 11:00-12:00 on November 9, December 7 and December 14 in the Wolk Family Chapel.
We would like you to join us as we explore our spirituality through a variety of davening experiences. Our davening follows the basic structure and prayers of a Shabbat service and may include:
• D'var Torah discussions
The atmosphere is relaxed and we encourage people to participate in whatever manner they are comfortable. If you would like more information about Minyan Katan please contact either Mike Gildesgame or Sharon Zirkin-Dagan.
