Shabbat Activitites

Educational and playful youth group activities

Throughout the year, we celebrate together – at social events, holidays, and special milestones. Shabbat mornings are even more special thanks to youth group activities that are both playful and educational.

Shabbat Morning Youth Groups

Tot Shabbat (age 2 through Kindergarten)
Rock Shabbat (Grades 1 – 4)
Led by dynamic young educators, Shabbat morning youth groups at the Shaar are a chance for children to become part of their own Shabbat community. Games, songs, and Tefillot bring the Shabbat spirit alive for children ages 2 through Bar and Bat Mitzvah.

Shabbat morning schedule

Children’s Siddurim

Our Tot Shabbat group uses Siddur M’Breishit, which is just the right size for little hands, and has beautifully illustrated pages with brief tefillot.
Our Rock Shabbat group uses Artscroll Children’s Siddur, which allows early readers to engage with the complete Hebrew and English text as well as brief comments on specific prayer passages.
