Youth at KCT

Kehilat Chovevei Tzion Youth is proud of the growth of our youth department into a professional program filled with Torah content, tefillah, an excellent staff, fun, games and lasting relationships. We are gearing up for an even more successful year filled with new youth leaders and more programs for teens and Shabbat groups for all children ages 24 months through 5th grade

Kehilat Chovevei Tzion is determined and dedicated to providing a meaningful Shabbat experience for all our congregants, including our children. To that end, from Chovevei's inception, children's programming has been our central focus. No other aspect of our shul has been more carefully planned, with our highly active and engaged Youth Committee crafting a program that will safeguard, educate and entertain our children. We hope that your children will participate and that you will support our program!
