Children’s services at the Central Synagogue

At the Central Synagogue, we are keen to build up a a strong young community again. To help achieve this, we have introduced a new Children’s Service format so that children of all ages may be catered for.

Why not come to the Children’s Service?

We now have a dedicated toddlers’ service crafted to take the group through a song-based, interactive experience of Shabbat. Older children can spend time discussing a specific theme of the week, or the weekly parasha, with integrated games and puzzles relevant to the topic.

The activities have all been designed to encourage children to feel enthusiastic about coming to Shul on a more frequent basis, to meet other children from the community, and to make friends. We are lucky to have our own purpose-built children’s shul, complete with ark and bimah and two honorary officers’ boxes. There is also a lovely room with soft furnishings for toddlers to relax on. This room and the little shul both open on to our beautiful succah.

Our services are led by Raquel and Yoav, and the involvement of the children at the Synagogue play a huge part in them.

We would love to extend our Shabbat morning services into other activities such as making doughnuts and latkes at Chanukah time, or Hamentashen for Purim, not to mention taking to the stage again with our famed performances (such as ‘Moses’ and ‘Purim the musical’) which always prove popular.

Come along and join us, we’d love to see you.
