Life long Jewish Learning ...for Young Children

Click here to view the upcoming youth calendar.

Mishpachah Monthly
Mishpachah Monthly 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!

 

Hebrew School

For grades 3 through 7, 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 is on Thursdays, however, we do our best to accommodate your family’s busy extracurricular commitments.

 

Babysitting 

Each week, we have an experienced early childcare-giver available to watch your child under the age of 5 in the Youth Lounge. You are always welcome to bring your child into the main sanctuary with you if you prefer. 

 

 

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.
