Shabbat at KMS is full of activities for children and teens. We have a Youth Minyan, Shabbat groups, B'nei Akiva and special events.

Kids drawing KMS is dedicated to providing meaningful, positive and inspiring experiences in our shul for all the youth of the community, from toddler age through the teen years. With teen-led Shabbat and Yom Tov programming, as well as a variety of other fun and educational activities throughout the year, we aim to help youth forge a bond with Judaism that will last throughout their lives.

Yom Tov Programming

On Rosh Hashana and Yom Kippur, we offer special youth group programs.  Registration must be submitted in advance, and may be done at the same time as High Holiday seat registration.  During most other days of Yom Tov, our regular group programs meet, with appropriate adaptations for the chag.


Purim at KMS is full of activities for our kids.  Starting with a youth-led Megillah reading, we have a Purim Carnival on Purim Day.

The Matan Bat Mitzvah Program

This will be our seventh year of mother-daughter learning.  Open to 6th grade girls and their mothers,  we meet nine times at KMS to study Jewish women through the ages.  
Learn more about the Matan curriculum from the Matan website!
