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 5779, Monday, September 10, 2:30 pm
Yom Kippur 5779, Wednesday, September 19, 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.

Both High Holiday Services meet in the Napoli Trophy Room in the Gosman Athletic Center, right off of South Street Road on the Brandeis Campus. Services will be led by Stephen Brickman.

Holidays @ BJEP

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 (join us on Sunday, September 30th at Powisset Farm in Dover), 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 matzoh and macaroons at a mock Seder, our children are experiencing the magic of the Jewish year.

    The Boston-area Jewish Education Program (BJEP), an independent, vibrant and inclusive Jewish learning community, from pre-K to Grade 7, invites the community to join us for Opening Day/Open House as we begin the 2018-2019 school term.

    Through an interactive curriculum, BJEP (pronounced B-Jep) instills in our students a sense of joy and belonging within the Jewish community, and knowledge of Jewish traditions and the Hebrew language.

    BJEP meets once a week on Sunday mornings on the Brandeis campus, with Brandeis students teaching our dynamic, experiential curriculum. We also engage parents with family programming and festive celebrations throughout the year.

    We look forward to meeting you and your family at our September Open House!
