Children

We have programs for Children 0-15 years.  Please visit our welcome table for more information.

What can i expect?

We gather together  every Saturday.  There is normally liturgy, singing, a torah service, scripture readings, and some teaching. Our 90 min service is structured similar to a synagogue service but also includes lively contemporary music.

What is worship like?

You’ll experience an amazing time of worship directed to God alone. We mix contemporary worship songs with upbeat traditional liturgy to achieve a great balance of worship styles. Our worship time is carefully planned to prepare hearts and minds to receive what God will say through the preaching of His Word.

What should I wear?

At Adat we encourage you to come as you are. Most people attend wearing business-casual attire; some wear suits, ties and dresses and others wear jeans or shorts. God sees our heart and that’s what He cares about; it’s not about the style of clothing we choose.   

WHAT DO I DO WHEN I ARRIVE?

We encourage you to come early so our greeters can help you and our welcome table can answer any questions.  Also, it will give you time to check in your kids and get a cup of coffee. We hope you will fill out the Get Connected card  at our welcome table when you visit.  This allows us to connect with you personally so we can help you take your next step in becoming part of our family.

IS there Child Care?

Children 0-3 years are welcome in our nursery during the whole service.
Children 4-10 years begin in our main service during Worship  and then parents are asked to bring their children downstairs .
Youth Class:  Older kids age 11-15 can participate in our Youth Class where we discuss that week's Torah, HafTarah and Brit Chadashah portions.  

Note Torah Procession:  As your family feels comfortable, please bring kids to the front when the children are called forward.  We'll pray for them and give them something sweet to celebrate the joy of having God's Word in our midst.  

Tzitzit, Prayer Shawls, and Kippas

We do not require tzitzit, prayer shawls, or kippas.  However, we believe in a distinction in calling between Jews and Gentiles when it comes to Jewish tradition and practice.  For example, tzitzit  are for Jews.  We don’t recommend it for Gentiles. But if Gentiles are insistent on doing it, we recommend that they do it privately and discreetly.  With prayer shawls  we ask Men and Women to wear gender appropriate apparel.  We reserve kippas for men.
