Join us for an introductory program designed to make the prayers personally relevant and inspirational. 
The interactive program will incorporate an overview of the significance of the day, prayers, songs

on these Holiest of Days, join us for our LEARNERS SERVICE led by Rabbi Avi Bukiet.



The interactive family service is an educational, family oriented program for  families. There will be two separate family services, one for the younger children, and another for the older children.

After the prayer experience the family service will be divided into two groups. The older children will go with Rabbi Avi to continue learning about Yom Kippur, listen to some stories, play games and eat lunch.

The younger children will remain in the room and continue the family service with Alex and Luna with stories, song and lunch.
