Coming with your kids?
We have babysitting for tots, children’s programs for the children, teen programs for teens, inspiration for all!
Children are invited to march in the Torah parade, and invited up close to hear the shofar.
And of course, there’s always The Song Shul Sticker Station to keep their eyes and hands occupied while they sit and listen to the beautiful music of the service!
