Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.
Proverbs 22:6

Shalom, and welcome to Eitz Chaim!

We welcome young families and look forward to partnering with you as you train up your children in the way they should go (Proverbs 22:6).

At Eitz Chaim, we support families who worship together family-style, with children participating throughout the service along with their parents, as well as those who wish to attend Shabbat school during the drash.

For children who wish to attend a class during the drash, we offer the following options:

Ages 2-4 years old: Childcare for the full morning service is available from 10:30am-12:45pm.
Ages 5-8 years old: Junior Shabbat class is offered during the drash time after the Blessing of the Children.
Ages 9-12 years old: Bnei Mitzvah class is offered during the drash time after the Blessing of the Children.

Tot Shabbat
Ages: 2-3
10:15am every Saturday
Childcare is available 10:15am, but the lesson is after the blessing of the children at 11:45am.

Children absorb everything from an early age, so we're passionate about starting early to communicate God's perfect love and grace that He's made available to all. Our curriculum includes music, crafts, and lessons that encourage our Tots in the beginning stages of their walk with the Lord.

Junior Shabbat
Ages: 4-9
11:45am every Saturday

Junior Shabbat class teaches the weekly Torah reading in a fun and engaging way. This year, 5783, we are studying the 4th aliyah. Our curriculum is being created weekly by Elisa Norman (co-leader of our Children's Ministry and doctoral student in Messianic Jewish Studies at TKU), and each week's lesson corresponds to the weekly Shabbat children's video which is shown during the morning service. These videos can be found on YouTube: the channel's name is Eitz Chaim Children. In addition to Torah study with a Yeshua focus, one Hebrew letter is introduced in the lesson each week. Junior Shabbat students also have the option of completing weekly homework, using the TLV Torah curriculum.
