Youth Programming

Darkhei Noam provides youth programming and childcare for children ages infant through pre-B’nai Mitzvah age during Shabbat morning services. 

Toddlers/Pre-Schoolers:  Babysitting begins at the start of services for our infants and younger children. Our long-standing, highly skilled babysitters provide childcare throughout the service. 

Tot Tefillah beginning at 11 am (or when the Torah is put away in shul) and consisting of tefillah, stories about the parsha, singing, and dancing with the Torah. The service concludes with kiddush and snack. This parent-participation group is lead by a rotating group of parents and uses a siddur created by Darkhei Noam parents.  

To volunteer for Tot Tefillah, please email Noam Lockshin.

Ages 5 and Up:  Youth groups begin at 10am with a half hour of informal activities and free play supervised by our DN teen youth group leaders. At 10:30am Darkhei Noam member Ilana Sidorsky leads spirited tefillah followed by a small kiddush. At 11am Darkhei Noam member Dan Smokler leads a parsha discussion and activities. Children are brought into the main service for the end of prayers and will help lead the end of services as they become comfortable doing so.


In addition to shabbat programming, childcare and youth programming is provided for all minyan sponsored lunches and dinners. 

Donations of gently used toys and books (for all ages) are greatly appreciated. Please contact us at to coordinate any donations.
