Youth Prayer

Throughout the year the children of the synagogue particpate in leading both youth and adult services and readings.

Junior Congregation

Junior Congregation is a lively, participatory service for children ages 5–12. While prayer is always a part of youth groups, on select weeks we will also have Torah reading. Children learn Shearith Israel’s melodies and have opportunities to lead prayers, read Torah and perform mitzvot. On some weeks there are also raffles with prizes for attendance and participation.

To sign up to lead a part in the service, email Mrs. Lisa Rohde.

Girls’ Book of Ruth

On the First Day of Shabuot, the girls of our synagogue recite Megillat Ruth for the congregation in the Main Sanctuary after services. If your daughter would like to participate, please contact Mrs. Lisa Rohde.

Young Women’s Shir HaShirim

After Musaf on the Shabbat of Pesah, the women of the synagogue read The Song of Songs in the Main Sanctuary for the congregation.  We are proud to have multiple young women and teen girls who have been participating in the service for consecutive years. Some girls sing The Song of Songs in celebration of their bat mitzvah. Immediately afterwards, the congregation may join together for a Kiddush held in the their honor.

Please contact Mrs. Lisa Rohde if you are interested in participating or would like more information.

Teen Minyan

A few times a year, our teens lead an entire Shabbat morning service – by teens for teens. Participants are trained and prepared to recite and lead prayers according to Shearith Israel’s beautiful tradition and dignified standards. To participate, please email Rabbi Hidary.
