Shabbat Youth Activities 

Groups are back!

(9:45-11:15, Upstairs Social Hall)

This shabbat, our favorite parsha games and shabbat tefilot return. Starting at 9:45, we will be meeting in the well ventilated Upstairs Social Hall for our smaller summer programming for 1-5th graders. 

We will also have Tot Shabbat in the usual location, in the outdoor space between the Gan and the Brick House.  

Masks are mandatory for all participants at children's events, regardless of vaccination status. All group leaders and staff members are vaccinated. Snacks and kids kiddush will still be done outdoors.
