The attitude toward children in the main service is very friendly: “KZ loves having children in the main sanctuary! We have toys and books out for them. Children are included in the service and congregants go out of their way to help. The rabbis stroller tire was flat on Rosh Hashanah and a congregant fixed the tire. When her child ran across the bimah on yk everyone smiled and told her it was nice to have more life in the service. No one complained.”


This synagogue received a rating of “Good, could make small improvements- 2” out of 7, where 1 is the best rating and 7 is the worst.
