Limmud B’Shabbat (Learning on Shabbat) is CBST’s primary Jewish education program for children. Engaging twice-monthly sessions include t’fillah (prayer) services for children, Hebrew instruction, exploration of Jewish texts and core values, brought to life through art, drama, music, Jewish culture, and LGBTQS values. The program reflects our community, offering our children and young adults the opportunity to understand the diversity of the Jewish world and find their home in it. The program is overseen by Rabbi Yael Rapport and Principal Jonathan Shmidt Chapman and taught by an exceptional faculty and a professional songleader.
- Programming offered for children and young adults, from early childhood through 12th Grade.
