FAMILY/BABYSITTING/YOUTH/TEEN PROGRAMMING FOR THE HIGH HOLIDAYS

B’nai Israel is proud to offer a variety of options for families and children to experience the High Holidays together! Please stay tuned for information about the High Holidays this year, but here is a sample of what was offered last year:

NEW THIS YEAR!

Early Bird Room for Children in Grades K–6
Children who are registered for a youth service may be dropped off early. They will be supervised and brought to the appropriate service when it begins. Registration is necessary.

First Day of Rosh Hashanah 9:30–10:00 AM
Second Day of Rosh Hashanah 9:30–10:00 AM
Yom Kippur 10:00–10:30 AM

NEW THIS YEAR!

Play & Pray Space
The lower level conference room will be open throughout our Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services. Parents with infants or toddlers who do not wish to sit through the entirety of a traditional service are welcome to watch and listen to the Dweck Sanctuary service in this comfortable environment. No registration is necessary to use this room.

FAMILY SERVICE EXPERIENCE

Recommended for children ages 5 and under with an adult. This service is free for members, but registration is required. The nonmember family fee is $40/day or $100 for all 3 days.

The Family Service Experience includes a service modeled after our popular weekly Tot Shabbat; singing, story, and art breakouts; and a light snack. Our talented team includes faces familiar to B’nai Israel youth: Laura Fingerhood, Juliann Goldman, Arielle Katzel, and Julie Steenberge.

Participants can choose between four ticket options: Alef, Bet, Gimmel or Daled. On the second day of Rosh Hashanah, all tickets will follow the schedule for option Alef. On Yom Kippur (Wednesday, October 9) all ticket options will start 30 minutes later.
