In Fourth, holidays

Main Services:

As always, seats are available in the Sanctuary and Philip Smith Congregational Hall on a first-come basis.

Family Services:

These Services are especially designed for those families with children between six and twelve year of age. While the congregational prayer book is used, the music is highly participatory. A sermon-in-story follows the Torah Service. The atmosphere is both welcoming and festive.

As in the past, due to the high demand for the Late Family Service on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur and to be fair to all our congregants with young children, you may choose to come to either the Late Family Service on Rosh Hashanah and the Early Family Service on Yom Kippur, or the Early Family Service on Rosh Hashanah and the Late Family Service on Yom Kippur. This will ensure a seat for everyone. Tickets will be allocated on a first-come, first serve basis.

Young Children’s Services:

These Services are especially designed for those families with children five years of age and younger who do not yet read. This Service includes songs, prayers, stories and movement. On Rosh Hashanah, a special treat is included for our youngest congregants to ensure a sweet new year.
