Tot Shabbat is our young people’s opportunity to experience Shabbat group prayer and song for the first time.  We learn the Shema and Barechu, basic prayers from our siddur (prayer book), and many other songs.  Using such friends as our “Shabbat-o-saurus”, we learn what we do on Shabbat, from blessing the wine, lighting the candles and eating challah.  We also learn holiday songs as each Jewish holiday approaches.  We are also happy to see the parents join their children at these sessions, as they also learn what makes Shabbat special.
