SO-SHUL Networking

WHAT IS SO-SHUL NETWORKING?
So-Shul is an immersive and interactive Shabbat morning experience for students in 5th and 6th grade designed to further engage students in congregational life. Each So-Shul session will give students the opportunity to interact with Torah through hands-on activities, games, discussion, and more. Students will also join in for portions of the congregational service with John Imhof while observing the rituals and proceedings of a Shabbat morning service.

WHAT ARE THE GOALS OF SO-SHUL?
As our Kittah Hay and Vav students are quickly approaching their exciting journeys to become Bar/Bat Mitzvah, So-Shul gives them the opportunity to have a front row seat to learn the ins and outs of the Shabbat service, Torah service and more!

WHAT WILL A TYPICAL SO-SHUL SESSION LOOK LIKE?

  • Students will meet with John in either the Joel A. Rose Chapel/Jenofsky Beit Midrash or the Helman Auditorium (Multi-Purpose Room) for an interactive study session of the Parashat HaShavua (Weekly Torah Portion). We will learn about the Parashah through fun games, interactive discussions, and more.
  • Participation in the congregational service. Students will join John in the sanctuary for parts of the service, all the while paying attention to certain aspects of tefillah and process while keeping track of observations through things such as bingo cards, service trackers, and more.
  • Short debrief and discussion about the congregational service experience afterward, with the occasional delicious treat!
