Tot Shabbat & K'Tonton

At Shearith Israel, your little ones are always welcome. We have babysitting on Saturday mornings, and offer Tot Shabbat (for up to age 5 with a caretaker) with age-appropriate prayers, songs, movement, stories, and snacks every Shabbat morning from 10:30am – 11:15am in the Multi-purpose room at the front of the administrative wing. (View calendar for exceptions, such as holidays.) 

This year, we are pleased to welcome a new line-up of leaders for our short and sweet service for our youngest daveners:


Monthly line up for Tot Shabbat:


· 1st and 3rd Shabbat with Jana Fruchtman

· 2nd Shabbat with Rabbi Helfand

· 4th Shabbat with Nancy Gorod

· 5th Shabbat (when applicable) with Sharon Graetz


when/where we meet:

Tot Shabbat meets every Saturday during Shabbat morning services at 10:30am in the Multi-purpose room at the front of the administrative wing.


what we do:

We have a blast learning about Jewish holidays and traditions via songs, fun art projects, stories, and other activities

how to get involved:

There is no need to register in advance – simply come and join the fun! Much of our programming is lay-led so we invite our parents to lend a hand when needed, and we’re always open to suggestions or ideas for new programs.  If you have questions, contact Sharon Graetz, Director of Youth Education, at




We have offered a K’tonton Pre-School Program one Sunday morning each month from 10:30am – 11:45am in Zimmerman Hall. These programs provide Jewish content and fun for our friends ages five and under. In addition, these programs have proven to be a wonderful way for parents to meet and form their own community within the greater Shearith Israel community. Stay tuned for details on K'tonton for the 2023 - 2024 year.

K’tonton meets once a month on Sundays from 10:30 to 11:45am in Zimmerman Hall.
Stay tuned for K'tonton dates for the 2023- 2024 year!
