The Adams Street Shul

Congregation Agudas Achim Anshei Sfard

Thank you to Nechama Cheses, Tsila Sloane, and Beth Drapkin who helped kick off the new and improved Chidren's Program this past shabbos. After the Torah reading, all the children got together in the social hall and were treated to a lovely dvar torah by Rabbi Durani and some fun games and treats.

The Children's Program has a rotating schedule of participating adults who will implement a mix of dvar torahs, games, and songs to engage the children and enhance their experience in shul.
