At Beth El, we are a multi-generational congregation, where young and old pray. We offer a variety of prayer and spiritual experiences to meet the diverse spiritual needs of our community. We are also hands-on congregation, where members of all ages participate in our services by leading the prayers, reading from the Torah, and chanting Haftarot, and so much more. We are especially proud when those participating are our children and teenagers who have learned the necessary skills through the Spiegel Religious School and Beth El’s B’nai Mitzvah program.
This special Shabbat morning service invites our religious school-aged children to experience Shabbat with learning, prayer, and fun.
Held approximately monthly. Information about this program is distributed directly to the families of school-aged children. Please contact the office to be added to the email list.
