Charry Service: 5th grade reads Haftarah & 6th grade reads Torah

The Charry Service provides a traditional, egalitarian service with a focus on learning.  Both women and men participate equally in our service, and we encourage and provide opportunities for participants to learn the language (Hebrew) and the skills (chants and tunes) that allow them to lead the prayers and to read from the sacred texts that make up the core of our service.  Our Rabbis and other guest teachers open up new perspectives on these texts and encourage discussion during our extended study period after the Torah is read. 

Beit Midrash: "Angry People, Angry God"

When is anger productive and when is it destructive? Biblical and rabbinic literature is full of anger, both human and divine. We’ll study a variety of texts (in translation) dealing with anger to find models that help us channel our anger in constructive directions.


Beit Midrash for adults will take place each Shabbat morning from 9:30-10:00am in the Magil Chapel.  Please feel free to enjoy coffee and cocoa on the Religious School landing beginning at 9 AM.
January 6 through February 24

Junior Congregation

Junior Congregation, for children in Grades 2-6:  Saturdays at 11 AM during the school year     

In this weekly prayer service, children take the lead in running the program contributing in whatever way is comfortable for them.  Some children lead prayers in English or Hebrew; some prepare Torah readings; even the youngest children participate in a variety of activities that do not require reading knowledge.  Any child who wants a leadership role in the service can speak with the service coordinator about volunteering.  Each service is followed by a special kids' kiddush.
