Youth Services

 

Each week members of the Temple Aliyah Youth community have opportunities to celebrate Shabbat with their peers, with their families and with the Temple Aliyah Community.  Throughout the year there are 5 different Youth Shabbat opportunities to choose from!

Friday Nights:

 

Sha-La-Lom Shabbat for Temple Tots (kids 0-5 years old and their families) 

At the end of a busy week, say “Shalom” to Shabbat, reconnect with your family, and make new friends. Sing, groove, shake and relax with the Temple Tots and Gan Aliyah Preschool communities! Our program includes singing, musical instruments, props and puppets, and a short tot-friendly service to welcome Shabbat for children up to age 5. Our Sha-La-Lom Shabbat services are followed by a familyfriendly dinner hosted at the Temple. All services begin at 5:30 pm. 

TA-K26 Kabbalat Shabbat Service, Family Dinner & Activities (for kids in grades K-6 and their families)

Welcome Shabbat with Family & Friends!   Turn your Friday nights into Shabbat, by joining TA-K26 for an engaging family service filled with music and movement, followed by a delicious chicken dinner.  Youth activities follow dinner, while parents reconnect with each other. 

Please bring a box of pasta or kosher soup for Temple Aliyah’s Family Table collection.

 

Shabbat Mornings: 

 

Shabbat Yeladim for Temple Tots (kids 0-5 years old and their families)

Saturday morning services are musical, full of movement and fun for our youngest friends! With singing, marching, silliness and stories, our Shabbat Yeladim services are held on Saturdays during the school year, starting at 10:30 am. Our services finish in time to join the rest of the community in the main sanctuary, and for our delicious Congregational Kiddush. Drop in to join us any time!

TA-K26 Shabbat Morning Family Services (for kids in grades K-6 and their families)

Celebrate Shabbat with your family and friends in the Chapel from 10:30-11:45 AM.  Lead a tefilah (prayer), act out the parasha (Weekly Torah portion), go up to the Torah for an aliyah, hear stories, sing songs and enjoy Shabbat in a casual, family-centered Shabbat experience.

Did you know...?

In celebration of Rabbi Perkins’ more than 25 years at Temple Aliyah, here is this week's question: Do you know how many books are in the Rabbi’s Office library at the synagogue? If you guessed 1,223 you would be correct! What would you add to your own home library to round it out Jewishly? Here are some suggested books you might want to consider.
