High HolIDays for young people

Middle School Experience

For 6th – 8th Graders
Rosh Hashanah - Monday, September 10, 10:30 am
Yom Kippur - Wednesday, September 19, 10:30 am

 

For the first time at Barnert, our Middle School aged children can connect to the High Holidays in a special experience. Youth Director Billy Bloomberg and Rabbinical student Becca Diamond are leading 6th through 8th graders in t’filah (prayer service) and a program to give students the opportunity to learn from each other and find a personal connection to this holy time. We will rejoin the adult service for the Torah reading and concluding prayers.

 

To help us make the planning process smoother, we highly encourage you to register in advance. Please register your child by August 31st using the form included in your High Holy Days ticket mailing. Note: If you arrive without pre-registering, please anticipate a longer wait at the table to allow us time to gather your child’s information

Donations to support this effort are appreciated. Please make your gift payable to Barnert Temple.
