High Holydays for website 2015

Family Services

This year we’re offering two special services that are geared toward school-age kids, and that offer a path of spiritual practice for people of all ages. Our Rosh Hashanah morning and Kol Nidre family services invite young people into the themes and practices of the Holy Days through songs, movement, conversation and spontaneously acted-out stories with volunteer players! In these relaxed, shorter services, we move through the touch points of the Days of Awe–the special melodies and prayers, shofar sounding, self-reflection, Torah procession, and the sparkling possibilities of new beginnings. Please join us for Family High Holy Day Services at Kehilla:

♦ Rosh Hashanah Family & Youth Service: Monday, September 14, 10:00-11:15am. With Rabbi Dev Noily, Sandra Razieli and Musical Prayer Leader Beth Dickinson.  All ages of children, teens and adults welcomed.  Tickets can be purchased by clicking here.
