TOTS SERVICE 

No Charge
This special experience is designed for children 5 years of age or younger, accompanied by an adult. The program, which is led by Cantor Josh Perlman and Early Childhood Director Rachel Siegel, includes a short service and story time. This service time accommodates families so they are able to attend the Torah Service in the Traditional Services and children can move to babysitting or Youth Services (separate registration required).

There is no charge for member and BISNS enrolled families but pre-registration is required. 

  • 9:15 AM on the first and second days of Rosh Hashanah 
  • 9:30 AM on Yom Kippur

Note: Children attending Babysitting/Youth Services following the Tots Service must be pre-registered here.
