Young Families & Pre-School



Congregation Shaarey Zedek is proud to collaborate with the Hillel Early Childhood Center (ECC). Rabbi Aaron Starr plays an active role in this exciting program, including leading Shabbat and Havdallah services for the children and designing meaningful early childhood programs and experiences weekly for Shabbat and holidays. We offer a weekly drop-in playgroup and our Gan Katan class (for children ages 3-5) is a wonderful doorway into synagogue learning on Sunday mornings.

In addition, Shaarey Zedek offers more than 100 events for families with young children a year.  Shaarey Zedek is the “place-to-be” for young Jewish families in Metro Detroit.
