Children's services

Your children will love our special High Holiday services created just for their age
group. We conduct a service for children ages 3 to 6 years, and a Junior
Congregation service for children ages 7 to 13 years on both days of Rosh Hashanah
and Yom Kippur. These services run just the right amount of time from
approximately 10:30 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.
