High Holiday Programming for Children

Rosh Hashana, Kippur and Succot

While the adults of the congregation are enjoying the beautiful tefillah of the High Holy Days in the sanctuary, we have wonderful, fun, and educational learning activities as well as youth-led tefillah for the children. Ages 0-4 enjoy quality childcare, holiday story-telling, and songs.  Children 5-12 play fun educational games lead by our engaging group leaders.  Join for special programs like a shofar blowing exercise and a sheheheyanu party.

This year we are offering our own young adults—college members and High School juniors and seniors— the opportunity to co-lead our high holiday youth groups.  If you know of young members who would be interested, have them reach out to Barbara Reiss.
