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 2-5) Every other Shabbat morning from 11 to 11:30 am. Please call or email us, or see our weekly bulletin for the dates.
Beyond Bim Bom
