  • High Holiday Services for Family Connection

    Hi Family Connection Families!

    The High Holidays are upon us! We have a few options for you this year! Please remember that you are welcome at all services. The only requirement is signing up, form will soon be mailed out. All of these services are free of charge.

    1. Our regular services are Tuesday, September 7th at 9:30 AM. Shofar blowing will take place outside at 12:45.

    2. During regular services, we will have a family program outside run by Rob Meyers, who will teach us about the holidays and make sure that the kids have fun! This will take place at 11:30 on the 7th in the tent outside.

    3. We have a special Family Connections service happening Wednesday, September 8th at 11:30. This will be a service designed to help you engage with your children in song and prayer. It is a space just for families where your kids can be themselves and be happy and make noise. We are so excited to have designed a program for us. It will conclude with shofar blowing at 12:45 by one of our very own parents!

    4. We will be doing Tashlich at Little Bay Park as usual. Time will be announced ASAP.

    As noted we will be mailing out registration forms. We hope to see you at some or all of these events!
