MINYAN OF MINYANS
Arrive by 11:10am, stay until 12pm, 10 times during the year, and celebrate this “minyan of minyans” with a special reward!

K-3rd Grade w/ Heather Kantrowitz (Rm 145): A fun and exciting Shabbat morning! We will do fun activities based on the Torah Portion, sing prayers and songs together in ways that connect them to our lives, and enjoy sharing Shabbat morning with each other.  

4th-6th Graders w/ Stacey Glazer (Rm 147): Each week we will make a new prayer and the weekly portion relevant to our lives today! Reviewing the themes of the Shabbat morning service over the course of the year through games, activities and discussions will add new meaning to our tradition. Torah study, discussions and theatrical interpretation help the text come to life.

So whether you are looking to connect your child through song, prayer, stories and games or services for youth that are informal on topics about Shabbat and other Jewish themes, we have something for everyone.
