Anshe Sholom has created programming to ensure that Shabbat is a meaningful and enriching time for our children. The programs and times are as follows:

Tot Shabbat (children 2 and under)
10:45 AM in the Social Hall

Children and their parents are invited to get excited about Shabbat! This is a wonderful opportunity for children to learn basic liturgy and sing Shabbat songs in a warm and comfortable environment. Each child has the chance to hold and kiss a tot-sized Torah.

Gan (ages 3-JK)
10:30 AM in the JCC Lower Gym

This service is geared toward those who are ready to move on from Tot Shabbat, but are not yet readers. Gan expands on what children have learned in Tot Shabbat, encouraging them to sing and participate even more on their own. With a heavier emphasis on the Tefillah part of the service, Gan Shabbat to serves as a bridge between Tot Shabbat and Yeladeinu. This is a drop-off service.

Yeladeinu (K-1st grade)
10:30 AM in Room 206 of the JCC

As a child enters Kindergarten, he or she is familiar enough with the Tefillah to participate in a more in-depth service, conducted from a special Yeladeinu siddur. Following Tefillah, children participate in games or stories, and are encouraged to lead the congregation in Ein K’Elokeinu and Aleinu in the main sanctuary.

Tze'ireinu (2nd-3rd grade)
10:30 AM in Room 105 of the JCC

As children move into 2nd grade, they participate in Tefillah, which is then complemented by interesting Parsha-related games and discussion.

Na’areinu (4th-5th grade)
10:30 AM in Room 104 of the JCC

As children are ready for a more grown-up siddur, they are given a more in-depth look at the prayers. After Tefillah, they have a snack and participate in Parsha discussion or activities. Children are encouraged to lead the congregation in Anim Zemirot.

Babysitting (ages 1-7)
9:30 AM until Kiddush in the ASBI Playroom
Kiddush until 1:00 PM in the JCC Lower Gym

We also offer babysitting on Shabbat from 9:30 AM to 1:00 PM for ages 1 through 7.
