First Fridays: Family Shabbat Service and Pot-Luck, 5:30pm
Spend Shabbat as a family at our brief, family-oriented services, the first Friday of every month. Rabbi Kraus leads an interactive service with a child-friendly prayerbook, stories, and singing. This service draws families with children grade 2 and under.
Shake It Up Shabbat, Select Saturday Mornings, 9:30am
Bring your children (preschool age and below) for a lively and fun 25-minute service filled with movement and music led by our clergy. Following our service, Erica Smiley leads and activity session to engage chlldren and their families with Shabbat, holidays, and Jewish tradition.
Rishonim on Sunday Mornings, 9:30am
Children age 3 to 5 are invited to register for Rishonim - a warm, nurturing introduction to Jewish life taught by Patrick Cahn, an experienced early-childhood educator and BETC member! Come meet other young families, learn about Jewish rituals and holidays through music, stories, crafts, games, and more! Classes run 15 Sundays, October through May; registration required.
