Youth Shabbat Programs

Shomrei Emunah works to provide a rewarding and engaging Shabbat service for children at every age, while recognizing that for many families, the Sabbath is above all a time for togetherness.

Tot Shabbat

Our toddler services for preschoolers and their parents feature singing, playing, a little praying, dancing and marching with stuffed Torah scrolls, storytelling, fun conversations, and a simple but well-earned kiddush over grape juice and challah.

Tot Shabbat is geared to children who are not yet reading and mainly attracts those ages 6 or younger.

Led by the always cheerful Jenna Mendelson, Tot Shabbat is held twice a month in one of the Shomrei preschool classrooms from 11:15 a.m. until noon, when families generally head upstairs to join in the conclusion of the traditional services.

Hinei Mah Tov ("How Good It Is To Get Together)

Hinei Mah Tov is our monthly Family Shabbat Service. A whole group of families – adults and children – have pledged to “get together” in community to explore ways to grow Jewishly, using the Shabbat prayers as a framework and platform.

We all have so much to gain and so much to give, no matter our age or expertise. Parents help children - their own and others’- to discover the Torah’s goodness and pleasantness. Children help their parents and other adults to continue to find ways to grow as Jews.

Hinei Mah Tov is facilitated by Rabbi Greenstein and by the family members.

This intergenerational service is open to everyone - families, singles, young and old - who wishes to join in this joyous journey.
