Youth and Family Programs

Join us one Saturday a month at 10:30 am for coffee, community, and conversation in the Ahava play yard for Shabbat play for children 7 and under. Rain or shine! Kiddush lunch will be provided in Srochi Hall follow Shabbat services.

Join us one Saturday a month at 10:30 am for stories and interactive songs celebrating Shabbat and upcoming Jewish holidays. Enjoy stories and songs followed by snacks, playtime, and Kiddush lunch. Everything is free and geared toward families with children ages 0-4.

Parents and their child(ren) are invited to join us one Saturday a month at 10:30 am for a morning of mindfulness and movement as we discover how to spiritually express and deepen our understanding of Judaism through the practice of yoga and meditation.

Friday night starts the Sabbath, the day of rest; so, why not start it off with a relaxing evening alongside family and friends, and leave the worry of dinner to us? Once a month, dinner will be generously sponsored by a different family. Help create special memories for you and your children as we turn AA into our shared Jewish home.

The renowned Jewish philosopher, Martin Buber, used to call prayer a “dialogue” between man and God. Buber’s philosophy is at the core of our new family Shabbat morning program; you and your child(ren) will engage in a dialogue with God through niggunim (wordless melodies), meditation, discussion, celebration, and of course, laughter. One Saturday a month at 10:30 am, bring your 6th-12th graders for this captivating and wonderful experience. Lunch is included with your participation, and babysitting is available for younger children.
