Children and youth groups
Once a month there is a Sunday school for children where we create things together, as well as singing and learning the Jewish stories. There is also a young people’s group where they sing and learn more about Jewish history and the Jewish religion. These groups generally meet on Sundays.
We also have a children’s service on the first Friday afternoon every month so that the children can welcome the Shabbat together – the seventh day, which is special for us.
For every Jewish holiday there is a special event where the children and young adults can celebrate the holiday together. They learn not only the history and religious backgrounds of the holiday but also the traditions associated with them.
Gescher LaMassoret offers a school holiday programme for children and adolescents. For the smallest members we create things, paint, and play sports. We also go on trips to various places.
The adolescents look for places they wish to visit in NRW themselves. Normally one or two youths will organise a trip. The places which are visited the most include museums, exhibitions and concerts.
