High Holidays Children’s Programming 
We will have full children's programming for services during the day from 9:00-1:00 pm. A light lunch (bagels, cream cheese, juice) will be served to the children on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur. This year, we will also be offering childcare for Kol Nidre and Ne'ila. Please fill out the participation survey.

We encourage you to spread the word to those in our community who you think would be interested in joining us.  Once again, we are not selling tickets and all are welcome to attend any of the services.  We ask that families joining us from outside the community consider making a $100 contribution per family unit.
