Ruach Shabbat: Every Saturday from 11:00 – 11:45 am

Ruach Shabbat is our new Saturday morning service for grade school children led by Educational Director Sara Birnbaum. Drop your children off and let us surprise them with new games and Shabbat activities. Through stories and movement, your children will experience new ways in which to discover Shabbat and its meaning. They will explore the Torah portion of the week and participate in skits and other group activities.  The goal is to have fun, enjoy being with friends and celebrate Shabbat together!  Check out the calendar for upcoming dates.

Tot Shabbat is a joyful and musical Shabbat morning experience led by Yanira Quinones.
