Shabbat morning is a time for community gathering and fellowship for our entire Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El family. Parents and Children are always welcome in all of our services. Listed below are special services for children and families.
This service generally meets the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 11:00 a.m. - 12:15 p.m. in the Community Room, and is led cooperatively by parents. It engages parents and young children, ages 2-5 in an interactive and child-centered prayer and Shabbat experience.
This is a monthly alternative service in which parents and children are encouraged to daven together. Beginning at 10:00 a.m. in the Coslov Auditorium, the full parashah is read in this service, and volunteers organize children’s programming for part of this time.
On most Shabbatot when Religious School will meet the following Sunday, two different Youth Services are offered in various parts of our building. These services are designed to be age appropriate and to give children the opportunity to practice skills learned in Religious School or Day School. There is one service for children in grades K-2 and one service for children in grades 3-6. 7th graders are encouraged to attend in the main sanctuary. Several times in the year, USY has a teen service followed by a lunch and learn.
This service, led by Rabbi Todd Zeff, is a place for families with children ages 5-8 to pray together. It generally meets on the third Shabbat of each month, in the Coslov Auditorium. The service includes traditional prayers, learning, Torah study, and stories and songs.
