Introducing the youngest members of our community to the joy of Shabbat through story-telling and music.
Beloved by Children and Grownups
Tot Shabbat at Temple Emanu-El is a family friendly celebration designed for children from infancy through 6 year-olds, and the big people who love them. We use puppets, costumes, musical instruments, and creative movement to get the whole family in the spirit of Shabbat. Each celebration includes social time to connect families to one another and the greater synagogue community.
For our Friday night Tot Shabbatot we offer hands-on activities for the children and a delicious nosh both adult and child friendly.
Led by Rabbis and Teachers
Tot Shabbat is led by Temple Emanu-El Rabbi Max Miller and/or Rabbi Rachael Miller. They have a passion for nurturing the spiritual lives of children and have a strong background in working with the littlest prayers in our community. Temple Emanu-El prides itself on prioritizing youth. The Rabbis MIller work with all of the congregation’s children, from birth through their young adult years. Services are musical, magical, and totally interactive.
