Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community
Kol Ami offers a monthly Shabbat program for kids, age 1-7. As our children mature, our previous Tot Shabbat program has become a Kids’ Shabbat program, geared toward Pre-K thru 2nd grade kids (younger children are still welcome to join in the fun). This immersive hour of Jewish song, skits, storytelling, and prayer provides the building blocks for a basic knowledge of Shabbat worship, song and Jewish values in a joyful environment. Our goal is to create positive Jewish experiences for families and foster connections within the Kol Ami congregation.
The fall dates for Kids’ Shabbat are:
The program starts at 11 am; at noon, families are invited to join the kiddush with the rest of the community.
Our Kids’ Shabbat leader, Andrea Cate, brings warmth and a wealth of Jewish pride, practices, and passion to her services with the youngest members of the community. She and her husband David live in the Springfield region with their youngest of three children.
