High Holiday Services

Shanah Tovah!  Happy New Year!

Rosh Hashanah is the Jewish new year, a fall holiday that calls for both rejoicing and serious introspection. According to Jewish tradition, Rosh Hashanah is the birthday of the world. Rosh Hashanah is followed, ten days later, by Yom Kippur. 

2016 Dates:

Rosh Hashsanah - Monday-Tuesday, October 3-4th

Yom Kippur - Wednesday, October 12

Are you looking for a place for your family to celebrate and observe the High Holy Days in an age-appropriate way?  Many synagogues throughout Chicagoland offer family and tot services.  Programs include music, stories, art, and interactive experience designed especially for families with young children.

The following is a list of  2016 High Holy Day Family services that are open to families who are not currently members. JUF Young Families and PJ Library hope this list helps your family to find a holiday experience right for you. Please contact congregations directly for any additional details.

Additionally, many congregations provide children's programming and babysitting during the adult services.  This list only contains services that are designed for parents and children together. For a list of adult services click here.  Services may require ticket purchases.
