Youth and Family Track *Programming marked with an asterisk requires pre-registration
Youth Programming*: Our High Holiday Youth programming for children grades K-8 will be held at The Weber School. In a new twist, each grade will move between 4-5 activities throughout the day (i.e. icebreakers, snack, tefillah, field games, etc.), and will build connections with their peers while exploring the themes of the holidays. They will also have a short service with Rabbi K! You can attend the Traditional or Enrichment Service and still pick your kids up on time! NO walk-ups will be allowed. - Sign-up here

ECHAD Family Services: For families with children 5 and under, raise your voices in prayer and song. For Rosh Hashanah, we will take a moment to reflect on the new year and the new beginnings in our lives. We’ll use our five senses as we hear the shofar, taste the challah, smell the sweet grape juice, clap our hands, and see the smiles on everyone’s faces. For Kol Nidre, we will come together to hear the holy Kol Nidre prayer, the Shema, and other key prayers, all in a format for parents and children to share.

Family Services*: For families with children grades K-6, we will explore the meaning behind the key prayers of the High Holidays service in a less formal, more comfortable setting. On Kol Nidre, we will not only delve into the spirtuality, but we will also share a meal before the fast begins. - Click here to register for dinner.

For Kol Nidre: This format is new and designed to allow you to easily feed your family and worship together for Kol Nidre. We will start with a pre-fast, kid-friendly dinner (reservation required) at 6PM and start services at 6:45PM. Rabbi K will lead a family-friendly service incorporating highlights of Kol Nidre and opportunities for family discussion and connection.

Babysitting*: The morning of each holiday, professional childcare will be available for children under 5, for a fee. NO walk-ups will be allowed. -

Enrichment Track
Enrichment Services: Join Rabbi Breit for High Holiday services in a more intimate, informal setting at The Weber School. These interactive services will dive into the meaning, texts, and prayer of the holiday. We’ll sing your favorite traditional melodies, pray, and learn Torah together.

Learning/Study Opportunities: Teachers from our clergy team and the community will fulfill your hunger for knowledge during these sessions available throughout the holiday season.


 

Supplementary Track
Essential Services: Essential Rosh Hashanah and Community Yizkor make it easier for you to access the parts of High Holidays that are most meaningful to you, in person, in a tent in our outdoor chapel at B’nai Torah. Led by Rabbi Heller, they include the main pieces of each holiday’s service, including sermon, shofar (on Rosh Hashanah), and Yizkor (on Yom Kippur).

“The Minyan”: For those who want to appreciate the traditional liturgy in an informal, family-friendly spirit, try these lay-led services. They will be held in a tent in our outdoor chapel at B’nai Torah.

 


Parking and Shuttle
Parking will be available ONLY at B’nai Torah and The Weber School. Enrichment and Family/Youth services will be taking place at Weber for your convenience. There will be a complimentary shuttle available to bring you back and forth between B’nai Torah and The Weber School.

Tashlich

The medieval mystics created the ritual called Tashlich to symbolically cast our sins into the sea. While Tashlich was originally performed on Rosh Hashanah, our community observance will take place during the 10 days. We’ll be offering opportunities in
Brookhaven and Sandy Springs on Sunday, October 2. BYOB (bring your own bread)!

10:00–10:45 AM - Brookhaven, Murphy Candler Park West Pavilion #2
