Mini Minyan and Junior Congregation are Shabbat and Yom Tov morning programs directed by Sherri Lerner with teen program leaders.
Mini-Minyan, designed for youth in grades 1 to 3, focuses on basic skills and concepts, such as prayer, as well as age-appropriate parsha (Torah portion) discussions, plays, games, stories and other activities.
In Junior Congregation, for Youth in grades 4 to 6, participants enjoy davening (praying), learning and conversation about Jewish values, customs and the week's parshat (Torah portion). Special year-long curricula on topics such as Jews Around the World and Jewish Heroes include visits from special guests and add a unique dimension to this program.
