Tot Shabbat & Family Services

Tot Shabbat Family Services, Dinner and Fun! - Friday evenings, 5:45 p.m.

Tot Shabbat services are family-friendly Shabbat services for families with young children and are led by Isaiah’s clergy (Rabbi Howard Jaffe, Cantor Lisa Doob and Rabbi Jill Perlman) and Rabbi Amy Hertz, Director of Congregational Learning.

Tot Shabbat services are held once a month on Friday evenings at 5:45 p.m., last about 30 minutes, and are appropriate for families and children ages 0 - 6 (older siblings are welcome). Each Tot Shabbat service includes candle lighting, giving tzedakah, an age-appropriate Shabbat service, and lots of singing!

After services, we join together for Shabbat table blessings, a complimentary family-friendly dinner and Oneg (dessert), arts and crafts activities, a playspace for our youngest guests, and the opportunity to meet other families with young children. No RSVP is required for dinner. We hope you will join us and get to know other families with young children!

Shabbat Club Service for 1st - 4th Graders and Families - Friday evenings, 5:45 p.m.

Shabbat Club is a new Shabbat service specifically designed for students in 1st-4th grade and their familie. We will enjoy a Shabbat experience with special kid-friendly prayer books and learn the prayers in Hebrew! We will sit in chairs in the chapel and have the chance to learn about the weekly Torah portion in a family-friendly way. We will join together with our Tot Shabbat friends for a family dinner after the service.
