All services and programs will take place at Hebrew Union College, 1 West 4th Street — see registration form for full schedule.


Led by Tkiya
A lively yet intimate service conducted in a sing-a-long format, geared towards families with children ages 0-5.
Tots and their parents join together in celebrating the holidays with songs, prayers, and stories.

FAMILY SERVICE (ages 6-11)

Led by Rabbi Joshua Stanton and Cantor Olivia Brodsky
A fun and engaging service geared towards families with children in 1st-5th grades (ages 6-11).
The experience is much like a regular service, with many of the traditional prayers as well as readings from the Torah. An excellent opportunity to allow young children to actively participate in a real High Holy Day service that is both age appropriate and very meaningful.
