Ne'ila Service at the end of Yom Kippur:
Children of all ages will sit with their families.  The rabbi will call the children up to the bima at the end of Avinu Malkeinu.  Parents of toddlers are welcome to bring their children to the bima.  Parent volunteers will hand out electric candles to the children, who will join the rabbi on the bima for Havdallah. 

Children's Activities

  • Art in rooms 3&4: sand art, beading, Rainbow Loom, and other crafts without writing, drawing, cutting, or gluing
  • Acting Time in room 5: drama games 
  • Games in Activity Room 2: games that get you moving
  • Hang Out Room in the Beit Midrash: quiet place to read, build with Legos, or play board games

Guidelines
1) After the Family service, please bring your child(ren) to an activity.  We keep our activity rooms free of food.

2) Children can switch activities when they are ready. Teen leaders will bring K-4th graders to their next activity choice. 5th & 6th graders can leave an activity on their own.

3) At 12:30pm our teen leaders will bring the children to the Simcha Room.  On Yom Kippur our leaders will bring children who would like a snack to the Simcha Room at 12:15pm. Please pick your child/ren up in the Simcha Room at 12:30pm. 

Wishing you a happy and healthy new year!
