SUMMER YOUTH EDUCATION

Most recent updates at Beth-Jacob.org/YEupdate.

Shabbat Youth Services

  • Minyan Katan: 9:30 am outside Beth Jacob for families with children ages 0 – 5
  • Kayitz Kefi/Summer Fun
    Every other week all summer
    10 am outside Beth Jacob

    Our wonderful Iyunim teacher, Tauby Mintz, will lead activities geared for children in grades PK-4, with younger or older children welcome to participate as well!

    In Kayitz Kefi, we’ll explore through play, song and story the themes of Earth/Adamah, Water/Mayim, Wind/Ruach, Sky/Shamayim. Each theme will incorporate Hebrew vocabulary and connect to a Torah story as well. As we engage in these themes, we’ll also be working on helping reorient ourselves to shul spaces and social interactions, as well as processing the experience of being in a kehillah together and what that means. The atmosphere is meant to feel more relaxed (similar to camp) and because we will be primarily outside, we ask that children bring a hat, water bottle, sunscreen, swimsuit and towel each time.

    Kayitz Kefi Dates: June 12, 26; July 10, 17, 31; August 14, 21

KIDDUSH KITS

We put together “Kiddush Kits” to help it feel a little more like Shabbat. The kits can be used on their own, or in conjunction with our online kiddush! If you can’t pick one up but would like one, let us know on the sign-up form.

If you would like to sponsor a future week’s kiddush kits, the cost is $400; go to Beth-Jacob.org/donate and choose “I would like to sponsor a kiddush” under “Choose a Fund”.

If you would like a kit, you must sign up at Beth-Jacob.org/KiddushKit by WEDNESDAY of that week; Kits can be picked up on Friday at Beth Jacob between 2-4 pm.
