Additionally, we offer Dor L’Dor Services geared to children together with their parents, grandparents, etc. Please check calendar for these service dates.

All Youth Service participants will meet parents at 11:30 am in the Sanctuary for the conclusion of the services.
Temple Beth El members and nonmembers are welcome!
No registration necessary
KinderShul (Pre-K to 2nd Grade) We meet in Room 3 and then go to the Sanctuary for the end of services. Our leader, Morah Gloria Lowy, provides Shabbat and age appropriate activities, including prayers, songs, stories, drama, games and more. We use the beautiful new prayerbook “Siddur Mah Tov”, which allows meaning and spirituality to readers and non-readers alike
Service Leader: Gloria Lowy
Junior Congregation (3rd-6th Grade) We meet in Room 4 for Torah study and other activities. Then we continue with a spirited camp-like Shabbat full of ruach and song, this positive and energetic Shabbat setting encourages participation with intention and attention to what we are doing – building a prayer community. We will join our families in the Sanctuary for the end of services.
Service Leader: TBA
Dor L’Dor Services are intergenerational Shabbat morning services with activities geared to families with children of all ages, where adults participate with their children to engage in Shabbat learning and praying. Parents and/or grandparents with their children gather for services and age appropriate activities will be offered focusing on different themes. A mini-kiddush will be held at the end of programming, and families will then proceed to the main sanctuary for the end of services together with the entire congregation.
Service Leader: Shari Spark
Family Havdalah This program celebrates the end of Shabbat with this family oriented service led by Rabbi Re’em.
Shabbat Shalom Club
The Shabbat Shalom Club is an incentive program offered to our Temple Beth El children, three year olds through 6th Grade. The children do not need to be enrolled in our religious school.
Stars with each child’s name will be up on the school wing bulletin board. Simply find the Cantor at the end of services and he will give your child the sticker to place on the star. Children earn prizes for attending Shabbat services and those who attend six Shabbat services per session will be honored for their dedicated attendance.
The first session begins after Simchat Torah and children may attend Friday or Saturday Shabbat services, Family Havdalahs, or Dor L’Dor. We ask that five of the six Shabbat services be attended at Temple Beth El.
