Youth Experiences

A fun and exciting space for social activities for Kindergarten to 12th grade, the Youth & Family Engagement Department at Beth El encourages all children and families to create long lasting friendships and a strong connection to the Jewish Community and Beth El through sports, crafts, outings, cooking and more. Programs are varied through the year so there is something for everyone, parents and children alike!

Youth Services

Youth Services begin at 10:45 AM on select Shabbatot – come early for a Breakfast Oneg at 10:15 AM
Children are always welcome to join the main sanctuary with their parents! 

Tot Shabbat (babies through K) is an exciting way for our tots to begin to learn the service through song, prayer, stories and games. Parents must attend with their children. Snack is provided.

Family Kehillah Service (Kindergarten—7th Grade) is a full participatory service that engages children and their parents through a traditional and innovative Shabbat morning experience. Filled with prayers, songs, discussions, and interactive games. Parents are encouraged to attend.

Teen Service is planned, facilitated, and run by teens periodically throughout the year. This service incorporates Ruach (spirit) and USY tunes providing an engaging Shabbat experience.  Check the calendar to see when teens have a sicha (conversation) about relevant topics today scheduled and for other teen takeover opportunities in our services.  Teens also have Shabbat services & dinner together on Friday nights throughout the year.

Libeinu is a Friday night service filled with ruach, song, and prayer. Followed by a delicious Shabbat dinner. Held at select times throughout the year.

Shabbat SPACE (Synagogue Play Activities in a Children’s Environment) is an exciting opportunity where Children (babies through age 12) are invited to join us in the Kasakove on Shabbat mornings, before and after Youth Services. Children will be supervised in a safe and fun environment, be with their friends, and play with Shabbat-friendly games and toys.
