Rosh Hashanah

Monday, September 10 at 9:00 am


Family services are a great opportunity for you and your favorite little ones to share together in the sweetness of the New Year. We’ll hear the shofar, and think about the ways in which we have grown in the past year. The service is participatory, musical, and most appropriate for families with children aged 0-12. Grandparents and other special grown ups are especially welcome.


Yom Kippur

Wednesday, September 19 at 9:00 am


Families are invited to join together for a celebration of Yom Kippur that will invite us all to think about the year that has gone by, consider what it means to say “I’m sorry.” The service is participatory, musical, and most appropriate for families with children aged 0-12. Grandparents and other special grown-ups are especially welcome.



Hevreh will offer childcare during the traditional Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur services on Monday, September 10th and Wednesday, September 19th beginning at 10:00 am. We will have trained childcare professionals in classrooms split by age, up to the age of 10. Those nearing Bar/Bat Mitzvah are encouraged to attend the full service.
