Holidays at BJEP

High Holidays

The High Holidays are a time to joyfully gather our community together, share stories, sing songs and reflect on the year. Our services, which are open to the public, combine tradition and creativity.

Rosh Hashanah: Saturday, September 19, 2020 at 2:30 pm
Yom Kippur: Monday, September 28, 2020 at 2:30 pm

Family Services (Children of all ages welcome) 

These services include Hebrew and English prayers, Jewish songs, and a creative Torah reading. Both services meet in the International Lounge in the Usdan Student Center.

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. On Rosh Hashanah, there will be a light Kiddush following the service.

NEW LOCATION: Both High Holiday Services meet in the Berlin Chapel. You can park on Loop Road or in the Red Parking Lot. 

Services will be led by Joshua C. Cohen who has been involved in the Jewish music world ever since he learned to pick up a guitar and sing at Jewish summer camp. Currently, he is the Music Educator at Temple Ohabei Shalom in Brookline and has also spent over a decade song leading for youth groups, kids, and congregations across the country. In addition, his full-length album of Jewish music titled “Romemu” exemplifies his passion for Jewish music and Ruach, which he loves to spread and share with the community. Listen to some of Joshua’s songs here.

Whether through formal or informal curricula activities, our children experience all of the Jewish holidays in an engaging and fun style. For example, our students celebrate Sukkot on a farm, sufganiyot (jelly donuts) and candle lighting during our school-wide Chanukah party or use noisemakers while playing games at our annual Purim carnival.  You can be sure that whether planting seeds for Tu B’shvat or enjoying matzah and macaroons at a mock Seder, our children are experiencing the magic of the Jewish year.
