Shabbat Playground

Are your kids going crazy inside during these cold winter months? Come to Shabbat Playground at Ramath Orah! We have scooters, jump ropes, riding toys, a slide, a tunnel- even a ping pong table for the older kids to enjoy. There is definitely something for everyone and parents will love it as much as their children!

Friday Night Family Shabbat Service

In the winter months, families join together in the CRO Social Hall for a festive Kabbalat Shabbat and Ma'ariv. Shabbat Mishpacha is a full davening in a family friendly environment with a spirited kiddush. Special thanks to Rabbi Grussgott for taking time from his schedule to deliver his weekly child friendly midrash.

Nursing Nook

While not part of children's programming, our nursing nook is a great resource for mothers with nursing children. Located on the second floor above the women's section, the nursing nook offers a quiet, secluded area for mothers to nurse their children.
