Kidding Around At Rodeph Torah

Children are always welcome at TRT – at every event and every service! But young children have their own schedule and their own interests, so we created a whole calendar just for them. Updates and information about all these events are on the TRT Facebook page, or call the office at 732-308-0055 for information. We look forward to seeing you!
