    Munchkin Minyan


Munchkin Minyan, ages 0–5, is a monthly Saturday morning Shabbat service full of song, spirit and stories, with Rabbi Rachel Greengrass. (Watch Munchkin Minyan Video)

Created for the minniest of minyaneers, we will celebrate Shabbat in a way that brings joy and helps our little ones to develop their sense of sight, hearing, gross motor control, practice crawling, walking, singing, clapping, dancing and develop their sense of wonder, their connection to Judaism and sense of family. (A minyan is a group of 10 or more who gather together to pray.)

Come meet Abraham, our puppet story teller, and learn some Torah, and get to know other families with little ones. This is a worship service so there is no fee. We hope you will bring your friends and relatives and give us your suggestions for making this new program a success.


How ‘Bout Shabbat —
A Family Experience with Jackie Berney

On scheduled Fridays at 6:00 pm in the Chapel. Please Check the Calendar for specific dates.
