Youth Kumzitz/Chill

Youth Services



These minyanim take place on Chagim (Festivals) and some Shabbat mornings. The services are run by the youth under adult guidance, and provide an opportunity to become more familiar with synagogue services in a youth-friendly atmosphere. Parental encouragement for their teenagers to participate in the minyanim helps them to feel comfortable and familiar with services later in their adult life. Rabbi Greg and Rebbetzen Hannah participate in the planning and in the actual services whenever possible.
