Children in Shul
Supporting Jewish family life is a priority for us. We encourage you to bring your children to shul on Shabbat, where they meet and connect with friends. Our services are extremely child-friendly, with infants, toddlers, and children of all ages welcome in our sanctuary. We integrate children into our services in ways that are appropriate to their ages, so that they can grow into prayer at their own pace, surrounded by adult role models.
The New Shul provides childcare on Shabbat mornings beginning at 10 am. We also offer the following learning services for children:
(for ages 2-4) Every other Shabbat morning from 11 to 11:30 am.
Beyond Bim Bom I
(for grades K-2) Most Shabbat mornings from 10:15 to 11:00 am.
Beyond Bim Bom II
(for grades 3-4). Twice a month on Shabbat morning from 10:15 to 11 am.
Parashah Study for Teens
Led by a parent. Every Shabbat morning from 10:15 to 11:15 am.
Family Beit Midrash
The New Shul offers family-based learning in small groups during the week. Participants in our Family Beit Midrash are grouped with other families with similar needs and interests, and children of similar ages, for weekly learning with Rabbi Wasserman or Rabbi Kanter.
