For families & children

We want to help you plan a meaningful High Holy Day experience for your whole family. Our family services on Rosh haShanah and Yom Kippur are free and open to the public. This experience is great for children through 3rd grade. We also offer childcare during our sanctuary services. Childcare is free for pre-registered children thanks to the generosity of Ron Cohen and Helen Kim; please register online by Thursday, September 6. On-site registrations and those received less than 72 hours in advance are $10 per service per child.

Fresh Food Initiative

Instead of a canned food drive during the High Holy Days, we request donations to our Fresh Food Initiative. Funds from this initiative allow our food justice and sustainability program to provide fresh food to those in need during the winter, when our urban farm is asleep.
