Adam Ofman, Teen Minyan Director

Adam Ofman is a life-long resident of Woodmere whose family has been a member of the shul for over 20 years. After his high school years in Yeshiva of Far Rockaway, Adam spent a year studying at Yeshivat Sha’alvim in Nof Ayalon, Israel.

Youth Programming

SHABBOS MORNING YOUTH GROUPS:  Shabbos morning youth groups are available for children in pre1-A through fifth grade.  Groups begin at 9:15 AM and run through the conclusion of Mussaf. There are separate groups for boys and girls, and the program takes place in the basement of the shul's Simcha hall. We are excited about this year's youth groups; we have hired new group leaders and purchased new toys and games.

Children should not bring their own food to groups, as the Shul provides snacks for the children.  We have made efforts to keep our Shul building clean, and we urge parents to instruct their children to treat the Shul and its grounds with respect.
