Everyone is welcome at all our services and programs, members and non-members, Jewish and non-Jewish partners/spouses alike. These programs and services are best for children ages two through kindergarten, though, older and younger children are welcome, too.
Tot Shabbat, 1st Saturday of each month (except for July and August), 9:30 am to 10:15 am in our sanctuary
Join us for the best Tot Shabbat journey ever as we learn together about how to make our lives Jewish-ly meaningful through our stories of Torah and through our Shabbat singing. In addition the wonderful talents of Jonathan Bayer, our Rodef Sholom clergy, Rabbi Stacy Friedman, Rabbi Michael Lezak and Cantor David Margules, will also be joining Tot Shabbat from time to time.
Shabbat Yeladim, 3rd Saturday of each month (except for July and August), 9:30 am to 10:15 am in our sanctuary
With Shabbat Yeladim, we are taking Tot Shabbat and re-focusing it for 5 to 7-year-olds. We promise that littler kids will still feel welcome, but now their older siblings will have a greater role to play and more challenging prayers to learn. Our first Shabbat Yeladim is during Sukkot, our harvest festival, so Jonathan Bayer will be praying and partying in the sukkah with kids and their families! No RSVP is necessary and everyone is welcome.

We hope to join with you and all members of your family to help to shape a Jewish ritual for your baby that will mark his or her entry into the world and our community with meaning or purpose.
