Life long Jewish Learning ...for Young Children

Click here to view the upcoming youth calendar.

Monthly Mishpachah
Monthly Mishpachah is a special intergenerational celebration of learning of every month. Each month’s experiential learning event has a different theme tied to holidays, Jewish values, or lifecycle. If you are not a Religious School family, certain fees apply for participation in this program, so check the calendar and make a plan to join us!

 

Midweek Hebrew Instruction

We like to think of our approach as the  Un-Hebrew School.  At Beth Sholom Hebrew instruction is done through one on one (or two on one, if your child prefers learning with a special friend) with excellent, experienced teachers.  Our instructors work with your child’s learning style, and abilities.  Instruction days are Wednesdays or Thursdays. We do our best to accommodate your family’s busy extracurricular commitments.

 

Shabbesville 

Beth Sholom’s unique place to unwind, unplug, and treat yourself to some  intimate play time with your child. Shabbesville is packed with no-tech interactive, sensory play materials which change weekly and are themed around the Torah portion, Jewish values and holidays. After a hectic week, reconnect with each other through sensory play tables, magnets, role play, marbles, story stones, the best children’s literature and more.  Who knew all the things you can do on Shabbat?  There’s a circle-story time component too.

If you prefer to join in the main sanctuary prayer service, Miss Susan, an experienced beloved early childcare-giver is available to watch your child for you in the Shabbesville playroom.  If you prefer to bring your child into the main sanctuary with you, a toy bin for quiet play is available there.

Every week’s service in the main sanctuary concludes with an invitation to all the kids to lead Adon Olam, experience hand-washing and get first dibs on the yummy challah.

But the Shabbat family experience just stop there!  Every week at Beth Sholom there is a sumptuous luncheon, during which our whole congregational community comes together to socialize.  When the children are done eating, there’s an assortment of large motor and vestibular Shabbat-friendly play items available so they can play together while the grown-ups get more adult time at the table.
