Holidays at BJEP

Family Services – Children of all ages welcome

Your invitation awaits to join the BJEP community’s all welcoming, inclusive and joyful service for High Holiday Family Services, from the comfort and safety of your home. Participate in community, find meaning in the prayers, sing loudly, learn more and reflect on the year as a family. BJEP’s Jewish Sunday School High Holiday family services integrate tradition and creativity, and we welcome all to join us.

Rosh Hashanah: (Sat) Sept 19, 2020 at 2:30 pm
Yom Kippur: (Mon) Sept 28, 2020 at 2:30 pm

Services run a little over an hour. While children of all ages are welcome, the experience will be most meaningful for children ages 4 and up.

Services will be led by BJEP’s Community Director, Rabbi Myra Meskin.  Zoom details will be sent one hour before services.  A prayer reference sheet shared on screen as well. On Rosh Hashanah, in lieu of a Kiddush on site, we invite our guests to welcome the New Year with a glass of wine or juice, apples and honey, challah and or food item of your choosing.  Our community@home Kiddush will follow immediately after the service ends.

Holidays @ BJEP

Our children experience Jewish holidays in an engaging, hands on and fun style.  We celebrate Sukkot on a working farm, host a Hanukkah family day program (in 2019, with a traveling planetarium from the Museum of Science) and share a Purim spiel, noisemakers in tow, for our families amidst our annual Purim festival.  Our aim is to impart radical amazement with our children who get to experience the magic of a Jewish year.
