Beth El holds special children’s services on both days of Rosh Hashanah, on Yom Kippur, and on one Saturday per month during the school year. These services give kids a chance to learn about prayers in a relaxed, fun environment.
Tot Services, geared for kids aged four and younger, meets from 10:30-11:15 am. Kids get plenty of chances to move around during the service. Every child also gets a chance to take a stuffed Torah out of the ark, squeeze it, and dance around with it, and the Tot Shabbat Torah processional and recessional is widely considered to be a (very cute) highlight of the service.
Beth El holds Family Services for families with children in elementary school monthly from 10:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. This is designed to be a service where parents and children can celebrate Shabbat together and engage in a service designed especially for them.
**We encourage, but do not require, all families to attend Shabbat Services as often as possible. A great rule of thumb is to attend services as many times a year as years your child is old. For example, if you have a 6-year-old, aim to attend Shabbat services 6 times during the calendar year (not including High Holidays).
