Shabbat Yeladim

Children Grades K-5, Open to Central Synagogue Members
Drop off your child(ren) with us and while you attend our Main Sanctuary service, we’ll provide an age-appropriate, fun, creative, and meaningful Shabbat experience downstairs in our Pavilion. Shabbat Yeladim programs will run 6:00-7:30pm (or when services in the Sanctuary conclude) and each week will include a Kabbalat Shabbat service with guest appearances from our clergy, a teaching on the week’s torah portion and upcoming holidays, and a unique and exciting theme (magic, Cupcake Wars, Bowling, and more!) with an accompanying activity.
