Shabbat Limmud "Family Learning Service"

As an integral part of our religious school program, students in grades Kindergarten-7 participate in a special Shabbat Learners' service that rounds out their Hebrew school education experience. Shabbat Limmud meets once a month.

Shabbat Limmud Shelanu for K-1

Shabbat Limmud

A learners' service required for our students and their families and open to anyone who wishes to attend. An opportunity to dig deeper into the prayers their melodies and their meaning.
