A more advanced, age-appropriate Shabbat morning service, aimed at students in Grades 3-6, Jr. Congregation combines a thoughtful prayer experience with discussion, games, stories, songs, and movement. Students are invited to bring an adult with them (but it is not required) and are encouraged to participate in leading the service with the leaders. Jr. Congregation is designed to help students become comfortable leading services in the sanctuary, as they become Jewish adults. Jr. Congregation meets weekly in the library, beginning at 10am and ending in the sanctuary 11:45 for Adon Olam (and lollipops!).
