On Sunday mornings after Shacharit and bagels and coffee, there is a Mishah class with Rabbi Lawrence Zierler. During the week when the Torah is read in the morning on Mondays and Thursdays, a special MiShebeirakh prayer can be recited on behalf of someone who is ill or in honor of an important occasion. If someone would like a MiShebeirakh prayer recited at that time please contact the Center office. The person’s full Hebrew name is needed. If the prayer is being said on behalf of someone who is ill, the name of his/her mother is needed. Shabbat Services with mechitzah in the Pressburger Sanctuary is at 9 am. And on Shabbat for young children there is a Kinder Shul @JCT for 3 to 8 year olds while parents attend services. Kinder Shul is from 10:30 to 11:30 am. The structured shul activity program is under the supervision of Abbe Rosner. The program is designed to engage the children through songs and games with a Shabbat or Yom Tov theme, and incorporate other age appropriate symbols and concepts to make coming to shul a…kinder and family friendly experience. Children are encouraged to come together at the conclusion of Shabbat Services at the front of the sanctuary to sing Adon Olam and receive a treat. The Jewish Center of Teaneck is located at 70 Sterling Place. The Jewish Center is a modern Orthodox synagogue with daily, Shabbat and holiday services, all under the leadership of Rabbi Lawrence S. Zierler, the Center’s Mara D’atra, Spiritual Leader. Visit the Center’s web site, www.jcot.org and also follow the Jewish Center of Teaneck on Facebook.
