Join us for a monthly Shabbat morning service for kids and their families (siblings of all ages are invited to join)!

Community Kiddush  following the services at about 12:00 pm in the social hall.

Tot service (best for ages 4 and under) and family service (best for ages 5+) will take place concurrently. Both services begin at 11:00 am.

Family services in the Social Hall (on the Main Entrance level) follow the order of a Shabbat morning service. We will learn parts of the liturgy, introduce the weekly Torah portion, and chant some of it too.

Tot services in the Chapel (on the Lower level) celebrate Shabbat with all the essentials: songs, movement, plush Torahs, and story time. Come to introduce the youngest members of your family to Shabbat services and connect with other families at TBB.

Rabbi Eliana will alternate which service she is leading; March 9, Rabbi Eliana will be leading the tot service (best for ages 4 and under)
