Early Childhood (ages 2 to Pre-K)

Stay tuned for a new Schedule of Services for PreK for 2017-18!

Story Hour (ages 3-5)

Story Hour: a one-hour program held once a month on a Sunday where 3- 5 year olds are introduced to the Jewish holidays through stories, songs and arts & craft projects. Children are exposed to Judaism in a fun, creative way, which helps them to create a positive Jewish identity. One does not have to be a member of the synagogue to participate and there is no charge involved.

Shabbat Soup, Song & Story Hour

Led by Rabbi Benjamin
Friday Nights, 5:30 – 6:30 P.M.

Check the calendar for schedule.

Geared toward families with children 6 and under (though older siblings are always welcome to participate), Shabbat Soup, Song & Story is a fun-filled time for all. For 20 – 30 minutes, Rabbi Benjamin leads parents and children in Shabbat songs, (including his famous “Put a chicken in the pot” song), dancing, singing the Shema, Torah marching and reads an age-appropriate story or two. After putting the Torah away, there is a Shabbat dinner of Challah, Kosher Chicken soup (veggie is available upon request) and a special dessert is waiting for the children. Candles are lit, Shabbat blessings are sung and then the children eat while the parents schmooze! This program is FREE. RSVP’s to Office@TempleShalomOnLine.org are appreciated.
