Youth Programs

Shearith Israel provides a diverse program for our children of all ages in the congregation. Our families come from many varied backgrounds and have the opportunity to participate in many educational programs.


 

Little Ones – Tot Shabbat & K’Tonton

At Shearith Israel, your little ones are always welcome. Please note: Currently, amidst the pandemic, we are not gathering for Tot Shabbat or K'tonton. We have babysitting on Saturday mornings, and offer Tot Shabbat every Shabbat morning at 10:30am in the Multi-Purpose Room. 

We typically offer a K’Tonton Pre-School Program one Sunday morning each month from 10:30am – 11:45am. This is not taking place, however, at this time due to the pandemic.


 

Kadima

As part of the national Kadima movement in Conservative Judaism, our 6th through 8th graders have a Kadima group that meets monthly for activities and learning. Usually based around a social function, programming includes religious, educational, and social-action activities. Programs include movies, ice skating, pool parties, rock climbing, and other social, engaging events. 

Kadima End-of-Year Event — Sunday, May 23 @ 2pm 

Celebrate the end of an unprecedented year of Kadima in this end-of-year social gathering.

MASA

MASA, which means “Journey” in Hebrew, is Shearith Israel’s post-B’nai Mitzvah class. MASA creates an enduring understanding for our participants that our history requires us to make a difference in the world through Torah (learning), avodah (worship), and gemilut chasadim (acts of lovingkindness). The class meets with Rabbi Kaiman, Nancy Gorod, and guest speakers, and travels to New York for an unforgettable, formative educational experience.
