Torah Time is an inter-generational experiential Shabbat and Yom Tov program centering on Torah: doing and learning about it through songs, games, activities and food. Various learning styles are accommodated. We welcome younger and older children, along with their parents, grandparents and visitors. Each week, we learn about the parshat hashavua (the Torah portion of the week) and actually take out a Toah and "read from it. The emphasis is on the joy of being and doing Jewish. At the conclusion of the morning's program, all children are invited to the main sanctuary's bima for Odan Olam, followed by Kiddush.
