Youth Programs

Got kids? Shaarei Shomayim has programs!

Every Shabbat and Yom Tov we offer programs for kids aged zero to twelve. Each program is unique and includes a great mix of davening, fun activities and yummy treats. The programs run from 9:45 am until the end time of davening.

Please email Rich Winkler, Director of Youth and Teen Programming, or call 416.789.3213 x204, with any questions you may have, and to subscribe to our Youth Matters weekly email.
