PARENTS AND KIDS

DC Minyan is pleased to provide programming for the many children and families in our community. To learn more, to get involved, or if you have any questions/suggestions, contact parents@dcminyan.org.

  • Shabbat Morning Programming: Currently DCM offers community-run shabbat morning programming for three groups of children. We offer a parent-led tot shabbat for children 0-4 and their parents. We hold a children's service and parsha discussion for kids in kindergarten through fourth grade. This program is led by parents as well as by some of our post-b’nai mitzvah members. We also have a parent-led parsha conversation for kids in fifth through seventh grade using Hadar's Devash newsletter. These children also learn skills for leading parts of the service during their programming. Our children's programs begin around 10:30. Email Tot Shabbat at totshabbat@dcminyan.org to help out.
  • Holidays: We offer holiday programming for children at a number of points throughout the year including Purim and Shavuot.
  • Parents Listserv: The Parents Listerv is a way for the Parents and Kids Team to communicate with families in the DCM community about special activities, events, and issues that are relevant to DCM families. If you aren’t already signed up for the listserv, email parents@dcminyan.org to be added.
  • Judaics Tutoring Co-op: Each summer, DC Minyan matches small cohorts of students who learn together throughout the year. The students meet in groups of three or four with experienced teachers to learn at least weekly by Zoom. DC Minyan provides learning objectives to each teacher based on the ages of the students in the cohort. The learning objectives focused on tefillah, chumash, and chagim. Cohort families then work together with the teacher to tailor the program to the learning styles and priorities of the families. The program is currently aimed at students between the ages of five and twelve.
  • Lifecycle Resources: DCM has a number of lifecycle resources on the website, such as information about planning a bris or simchat bat. We also have a guide for planning a bar or bat mitzvah at DCM, which you can find here.
