Geared especially toward children in grades one through six, yet designed to be welcoming for all adults and children, our monthly Family Shabbat services feature many opportunities for participation, uplifting and lively new melodies mixed in with our familiar tunes, and instrumental accompaniment by CBE’s own talented musicians. Each month, children, and even families together, have the opportunity to lead a prayer, blessing or song in the service. This is a fun way for children (and parents) to learn and to feel the special sense of joy and pride that comes with leading a community in prayer. Please let Rabbi Mintz or Cantor Spierer know if you or your child would like to help lead.
After the service, we will enjoy a special oneg Shabbat, a time for a nosh and visiting with old and new friends together.
Share Shabbat with friends and communityat our monthly Tot Shabbat services. On the third Friday of each month, at 6:00 PM in the sanctuary, we will welcome in the Sabbath together with Torah stories, dancing, and prayer.
All preschoolers, siblings, and families are invited to sing, move, and learn with Cantor Sarra in the sanctuary. Children with a birthday during the month will receive a birthday blessing. After services, we will all come together for Oneg Shabbat, a sweet nosh and conversation in the Social Hall. This is a wonderful way to meet new friends in the community!
Join us this month on Friday, December 21st. All are welcome. We look forward to seeing you!
