5-11 Service : A guide to the prayers & running the service

The 5-11 service is what it says on the tin; a service for the children aged 5-11. The service takes place every Shabbat, led by one of a group of volunteers on the children service rota.

Each week the service leaders will appoint 'wardens' to help with running the service, who will

  • bring their friends along
  • collect and return the siddurim from the bookcase
  • help chose the tunes for prayers.

The service is led using the new United Synagogue Children's siddur and follows the order below. The prayers listed in bold are ones that are the core of the service every week, with the others dependent on the time available.
