Join us for our High Holiday Children’s Services, which will be held on RH Day 1 and YK.  They are intended for children newborn – age 5, but anyone is welcome.  They are both free, and they will both begin at 10am.  They are both being held on the CBS Campus!

Our popular and interactive Family Services are designed for families with young children ages newborn – Kindergarten. This brief service provides children with an opportunity to connect with the rituals, music, and stories of the High Holy Days in a warm and fun context. The service uses the engaging and family-friendly Machzor Katan and is co-led by Rabbinic Intern Amanda Russell, CBS Family Preschool Director Katherine Friedman Barboni, and CBS Family Preschool Assistant Director Dale Kleisley. Services occur in the Makom Shalom Meditation Room at 10 a.m. on Rosh Hashanah Day 1 and Yom Kippur and are free and open to all families, with and without enrollment in Days of AWEsomeness.

Check out their calendar for more info.
