Junior Congregation

ACI offers a Shabbat morning youth program geared towards students who are already registered for our Tuesday afternoon classes. This supplemental program is intended to further build community among our youth in a fun and engaging manner using music, art, games, and movement. The program also introduces children to Shabbat songs, some key morning prayers, and the importance of gemilat chesed, bestowing kindness to others. After dropping off their children, parents are welcome to join the congregation for services in the main sanctuary. 

At the end of both Shabbat morning programs, teachers and students will join the congregation in the main sanctuary for the conclusion of the service. Kiddush will follow.  

Please contact us at hebrewschool@astoriacenter.org with any questions!
