Programs

From tots to teens, our Youth programs enhance synagogue life for kids at Ahavat Achim. Programs include:

Tot Shabbat: Shabbat services for toddlers and their caregivers. Free play, story time, Shabbat songs, and snacks add up to lots of fun for the diaper set.

Youth groups for children 5-12 introduce structured davening through tefillah, song, games, and other activities.

Teens are an essential part of the Hashkama Minyan, leading services, layning, and acting as gabbais.

Pirkei Avot By Teens For Teens gives teens a chance to prepare and present weekly shiurim on ethics following the Hashkama Minyan.

NCSY, Friday Night Lights, and special programs with Rabbi and Rebbetzin Shestack provide social and intellectual stimulation for teens and young adults home from college throughout the year.

Bar and Bat Mitzvah learning. Members’ children prepare for their Bar and Bat Mitzvah by learning a subject of their choice with Rabbi Shestack. The opportunity to learn with their rabbi not only deepens their Bar/Bat Mitzvah experience, but offers a unique chance to bond with a dynamic rabbi who is truly interested in their transition into full members of the Jewish community.
