At the core of Congregation Beth Abraham-Jacob’s mission is a commitment to developing a warm, fun, and educational environment for the youth of our synagogue. CBAJ strives to provide meaningful and positive Jewish experiences for all of the children in our community through weekly Shabbat morning and afternoon programming, Saturday night and Sunday morning events, and NCSY programming. In addition, youth programs are led and organized by trained and dynamic Youth Directors and Advisors who act as positive Jewish role models for the children of our community.
The keystone of Shabbat programming is Shabbat Morning Groups where children learn to love coming to Shul and experience Shabbat. These groups are fun, educational, and capped off with delicious kid-friendly snacks. Children study the Torah portion, celebrate the chagim, listen to stories, play educational games and participate in other educational experiences and activities to help discover the special meaning and joy of Shabbat. Shabbat Morning Groups provide a safe, fun, social, and educational alternative through an age-appropriate Shabbat experience.
