There is a comfortable place for every member of your family to spend Shabbat and holidays at the Huntington Jewish Center.
Babysitting: Babysitting is available for 0 to 4 year olds every Shabbat and festival morning from 10:30 to noon.
Nitzanim: 4 through 7 year olds participate in their own Shabbat morning service, led by one of our staff members. This early start in Shabbat prayer and skills allows your child continued comfort in Jr.Congregation and beyond. Mid-year, those students whose Hebrew and prayer skills have developed, will move into Junior Congregation. The Nitzanim children lead the congregation in singing Ein K’Eloheinu at the conclusion of services in the main Sanctuary and have their own Kiddush. Nitzanim meets every Shabbat and on both days of each holiday from 10:40 – 11:40.
Junior Congregation: Services modelling worship in the main Sanctuary are conducted each week by the 8 – 12 year olds in the Lief Chapel under the supervision of one of our staff members. Junior Congregation affords the opportunity to put into practice that which the children learn in the classroom. In addition, the weekly Torah portion is experienced through drama, games, stories, and free discussions. Those children who have learned the Torah Trope often chant the weekly Torah reading. Jr. Congregation has its own Kiddush each Shabbat. Jr. Congregation meets from 10:30 – 11:45.
