Junior Congregation is about a creating a community in which you look forward to hanging out and having fun with your friends while learning and doing prayer, studying and arguing about Torah, and reinforcing Hebrew skills.
The UJS has adopted a new Hebrew program, but the simple truth is that the more often one engages with Hebrew, the more fluency one will develop. Therefore, Junior Congregation this year will include elements of a Hebrew and Torah educational program, as well as retaining elements of a Junior congregation Shabbat service. It will incorporate a Torah discussion, some Hebrew prayer reading practice combined with learning about the prayers, and the service itself.
Junior Congregation will be led by Marisa Krishef and Marni Vyn, usually meeting on the first and third Shabbat of the month at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel or classroom 6. We'll be learning new tunes and helping the grown-ups by leading end-of-service prayers in the sanctuary. Come join us!
Because of the start of the holidays, note the day and time changes in September and October:
JCong will meet on October 4 (11:30 a.m., Yom Kippur) and Saturday, October 18
