Bet David is proud to be an all-generations congregations, providing space and services for all members of our community. And young people are a vital part of our community, and as such they deserve a special place in the congregation.  Our Family services on a Friday evening (followed by a Pizza supper), our Religion School, Netzer programs , and our youth services on a Saturday morning provide opportunities for young people to learn about themselves, our community, and Progressive Judaism.  Through programs such as youth High Holiday services, Purim carnival , Family Seders for Passover, and a number of social action events, we are able to meld Jewish fellowship with fun activities!

Oh – and while we’re on the topic – let’s not forget about having lots of fun!


For Toddlers we have activities in the Kids‘ lounge at the back of the Shul every Friday between 18:00 to 19:00 and every Shabbat morning between 10:00 and 12:00am. At the same times, we will have a programme and a little service for older kids (up to 12years) in the youth lounge.

We are looking forward to seeing many of you!
