Parsha Emor – Unruly kids
About 4 years ago, my family and I moved to a decent size Jewish community. There are several Torah institutions in town, but we typically go to the big shul. With a 100+ year history and a good 300 people on Shabbat, there is always something going on.
There are a lot of young families and the shul provides Shabbat programming for different age kids. For whatever reason there are some kids that don’t go to the Shabbas Groups and end up either sitting with their parents or, more often than not, playing with their friends in the hallways and social hall.
