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 30, 2:30 pm
Yom Kippur 5779, Wednesday, October 9, 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.

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, 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.
