I agree with you 100%, but I'm tied to the synagogue we belong to now, even though very few young families attend services. The children's service is only held once a month or so, and that helps, but it's not enough for us!
I bought my children special children's Bibles (whatever the Jewish equalent is?) and if nothing else they could look at the pictures during the services. This activity usually prompted questions, but I saw that as a good thing!
Oh, we go every week, sometimes twice, and have been for their entire lives. They just aren't always enthusiastic about it, and I've been trying to come up with ways to make it more interesting.
How old are your children? Do they attend Sunday school?
Not adding a new answer b/c it would repeat. I was also going to ask how old they are? One idea heard is to sit toward the front so they can see/hear what is going on easily.
They're 6 and 9. My younger child is still interested and enjoys it, but my older one has reached an eye-rolling stage, and only wants to sit and read a novel instead of participate.
