Returning Again: Family Service Resumes At Holy Blossom!
Following months of absence imposed by the COVID pandemic, Holy Blossom Temple’s beloved Shabbat Morning Family Service resumes on Saturday, March 26 at 10:30 am. Once again, in the warm environs of our Youth Chapel, we will delight in the music and song of David Gershon, the beauty of our Shabbat blessings and prayers, the remarkably enduring lessons of Torah and the joyous celebration of our Temple community among our young…and younger!
Below are words of our members that attest to Family Service meaning and value:
The family service is such a special place. We started attending when our kids were just babies and my daughter just became a Bat Mitzvah last year. Each Rabbi has brought her/his own special something to each service and of course, it wouldn’t be a family service without David Gershon to lead us in beautiful song. The warm and welcoming feeling is always there. “Growing up” with this group has been so wonderful for our family.
Our family has regularly attended the family services for many years from when both children were one week old. Holy Blossom has supported us through many life events – wedding, shiva, baby naming, Brit Milah, confirmation, summer camp, and becoming a Bat/Bar Mitzvah. The family service patrons have become our extended family through many of these milestones. We are grateful for the lasting friendships and watching our children grow up and share their values with the community.
Please note that all those eligible to be vaccinated are required to be fully vaccinated to attend Family Services. Full vaccination means two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine plus at least two weeks from your second vaccine. Children under 5 years old who are ineligible to be vaccinated at this time are welcome to attend. All participants two years old and up are required to wear a mask.
Family Service celebrants can also look forward to an enjoyable nosh following worship, held in an adjacent room for those who wish.
