High Holidays at Sunday School and Beyond!
This year, Religious School starts (on 9/11) a few weeks before Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year, 9/28-29). Yom Kippur, the next holiday, isn’t until October 7th.
This will give our students time on Sunday mornings to learn about the holidays before they arrive. We teach our young kids some of the symbolism (apples and honey for a sweet New Year, for example) and with our older kids we talk about a range of topics (like why celebrate Jewish holidays!).
On September 29th, we’ll have a Rosh Hashanah Service for All Ages at 2:30 PM and on October 8th, we’ll have a Yom Kippur Service for All Ages. These are especially geared for 6-11 year olds, but all welcome! And you don’t need to be a member of Beth Adam or enrolled in our Sunday School to participate.
For 0 to 6 year olds and their families, we have a special High Holiday program on Friday, September 23rd at 4 PM. This will include stories, art projects, music, and more. Again, all are welcome! Just call us to RSVP.
We look forward to wishing you all a Happy New Year this September!
