Holidays and Events

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, share a Purim spiel and our annual Purim festival, and volunteer in the local community on Mitzvah Day. Experience the magic of the Jewish year as a family, in community.

High Holidays

Join the BJEP community’s all welcoming, inclusive and joyful High Holiday Family Services. 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, lots of music (singing loudly optional), and welcome all to join us.

Rosh Hashanah: (Tues) Sept 7th, 2021 at 3:00 pm

Yom Kippur: (Thurs) Sept 16, 2021 at 3:00 pm.

Learn more/RSVP here, so we know where to send the Zoom link.

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 Rabbi-in-Residence, Rabbi Myra Meskin.
