Early Childhood

At Temple Sinai, we are committed to providing top-notch educational and social programs for our youngest children and their families. Successful programs like our Daddy and Me events, Tot Shabbat and Torah Tots sessions, are just the tip of the iceberg. This year we've added Moms and Tots and a Baby and Me program. We hope to see your family soon!

Tot Shabbat

Once a month, normally on a Friday evening but occasionally on a Saturday morning (see dates below), families with children ages five and under (older siblings are welcome too) gather to celebrate Shabbat in a kid-friendly service. The service includes lots of singing (and sometimes guitar playing), dancing, blessings, and a short story told by one of the Rabbis. An oneg Shabbat with healthy snacks, challah, and drinks directly follows the service. Each Tot Shabbat has a theme relating the closest holiday. After the oneg, children of all ages are invited into the religious school art room to do a simple and fun theme-related art project.
