Children of all ages are always welcome in our sanctuary services with their families. Please see the shul's vaccination statement regarding all those attending in-person services.  

Overseen by our Director of Family and Youth Engagement, Sabrina Friedman, MSW (below), we offer specially designed hybrid (some online, some in-person) programming for kids throughout the school year & on the High Holidays. Parents also take on a dynamic role, participating in the youth committee or actively engaging in or leading children’s programs.

 Sabrina provides programming and leadership to our children from childhood, to B. Mitzvah and through their teen years. Sabrina is also the aunt to 9. 

Shabbat Family Services: One Shabbat per month, we provide a fun, interactive, all ages, in-person Shabbat service for children and parents from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm. Please contact us for more details and to register.

Other Programming:


B. Mitzvah: During the school year students approaching their B. Mitzvah participate in a bimonthly class co-facilitated by Rabbi Elkin and Sabrina Friedman, our Director of Family and Youth Engagement. The class provides opportunities to explore themes relevant to becoming a Bar, Bat or Bnei Mitzvah & fosters development of a shul community for our young people. Check out the Bat/Bar Mitzvah page for more information.
