Childrens’ High Holiday Happening

Here is an extra special program on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur for families with children in grades K-5. All are welcome!  Join us for Congregation P’nai Tikvah’s New Children’s High Holiday Happening on Sunday, September 25 from 2 to 3:30pm at the Adelson Educational Campus. This free, child-oriented program is open to the entire community. (Of course any donations are welcome and help us subsidize the costs and expand these efforts!) Activities provide a warm, comfortable entry point for the unaffiliated as well as for interfaith families to learn about the Days of Awe together.

Learn together with your family about the high holidays in a welcoming, experiential and innovative environment. Our host of eager and experienced educators along with talented volunteers, are providing their time to enrich and inspire elementary-age minds and their families! (K-5th grade)
