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 5778, Thursday, September 21, 3:00 pm
Yom Kippur 5778, Saturday, September 30, 3:00 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. Led by Sue Horowitz; our Director, Cantor Jeri Robins will be joining her on Rosh Hashanah.

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 in the International Lounge following the service.

A minimum suggested tax-deductible contribution of $100 per family is requested. Please pay online via PayPal or bring a check payable to BJEP.

We are always looking for parents to help with set-up and outreach. Don’t be shy! For more information or to register, please contact Cantor Jeri Robins at or (781) 386-7278.


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 October 8th at Powisset Farm in Dover), enjoy latkes 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.
