NOTE: All programming is now offered virtually! Check out Tot Shabbat and visit the Religious School!

TOT SHABBAT is a fun way to celebrate Shabbat with our community! Our monthly Tot Shabbat program, led by Rabbi Romer, is a 30-minute parent-participation program designed for newborn through kindergarten-aged children. The Rabbi plays guitar while introducing the basic elements of Jewish religion, traditions, and practices. Tot Shabbat also explores holiday themes as well as Hebrew letters and beginning vocabulary. Each Tot Shabbat is followed by a special Kiddush, complete with healthy snacks.


Fun, friends, exploration, and growth. Welcome to Zimet Religious School’s Gan Shalom, a place where children are able to grow and learn in a Jewish setting. Our program is ideally geared for children between 36 months and 6 years, followed by an education program for age 6 - 18.

Hebrew, holidays, customs and values are integrated into our activities: Stories, music, singing, dancing, cooking, art projects and special Shabbat programs are featured.


The Family Shabbat Project’s theme changes from event to event, but always involves a kid-centered event for the whole family. These events are always free and open to the whole community. Registration requested.
