From services geared toward families of all kinds, to workshops and programs to help the modern family, we offer a wide variety of family-friendly events and learning opportunities.
Shabbat Family Experience
Creative, interactive and upbeat Shabbat celebration that incorporates family-themed activities held most second Saturdays each month at 10:30 am in the Epstein Chapel.
Third Saturday every month 10:30 – 11:30am
This service is for young families to share songs, prayers, stories, games and playground time; then partake of a kid-friendly kiddush. Geared to families with kids ages 1 to 6, but every family is welcome!
Mishpachah (Family) Minyan
Fourth Saturday every month 9:45 – 10:30am
This is an opportunity for young families to enjoy a traditional Shabbat service including P'sukey D'Zimrah (Introductory service) and Shacharit (Morning service) in a more intimate environment in the Epstein Chapel.
Minyan Shelanu – "Our Minyan"
All are welcome to attend this lay led service – from the one-month-old child, to the fidgety teen, to the 90-year-old great-Bubbie: children and adults of ALL ages. We daven with ruach and the inspiration of a camp service! Throughout the year, we explore the meaning behind the prayers and music of the Shabbat morning service. Held the fourth Saturday at 10:30 am in the Epstein Chapel. Following the service, we join the sanctuary service for kiddush in Rabbi Breger Hall.
