Family Services

Each month on the first Friday, in our social hall, we hold Family Shabbat services led by the rabbi which use a prayer book oriented toward children and feature a story. Popcorn, drinks, and other snacks are available throughout the service. We now also hold craft time for younger children beginning at 5 pm on those Friday nights. A dinner follows services. We ask that people bring a side or dessert to help supplement our meal.

We also hold Family oriented services for many holidays. Our congregation holds special family oriented services for Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, Sukkot, Simchat Torah, Chanukah and Purim. Our congregational Passover Seder, which we believe to be the most enjoyable Seder offered anywhere, is fun for children of all ages! We also hold a special Shabbat morning service designed for families with young children at Blank Park Zoo during the Summer and a Pet Shabbat service at which families are encouraged to bring their pets.
