Children are welcome in EVERY service at Neveh Shalom. You are also invited to services specifically designed for children and families.
Leaders. On Erev Rosh Hashanah and RH Day 2, family services are led by Rabbi Eve Posen. On RH Day 1 and Yom Kippur, family services are led by Morah Leah Conley and Morah Candace Rothstein, Mel Berwin (Director of Congregational Learning) and Kiddush Club/ALIYAH teachers Gershon Liberman and Sarah Rohr.
FAMILIES. Parents are expected to stay and participate with children in Family Services. We welcome younger or older siblings at every family service, and we encourage you to attend the one that feels like the best fit for your family.
Tickets. Attendees to any High Holy Day service must have a ticket to enter the building; including for family services, except for 2nd Day Rosh Hashanah where no ticket is needed.
Rabbis’ Sermons. Family Services have been scheduled to allow parents to attend the Rabbis’ sermons in either of the adult services.
Childcare & Game Room. Family services provide a wonderful opportunity for you to daven and pray with your children but do not have to replace adult prayer time. Educational Childcare is available for children ages 12 months through 2nd grade, and we have a game room for children in grades 1-5 after family services.
Covid Policy. Masking is required and everyone 6 months and older who are eligible must be vaccinated.
