youth & family high holy day programs

  • High Holy Day Guide, Grades K-6: Shifts in our community's response to COVID-19 have prevented us from offering the parallel youth programming for grades K-6th this year. We created this family and youth engagement guide to provide parents with ideas for including their children in the celebration of Yom Kippur. Our hope is that this guide will enrich these unusual high holy days for every member of your family.
  • SALTY Teen Program, Grades 7-12: All teens are welcome to attend these special programs, on both Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, led by our SALTY board members. Registration is required on the temple calendar. 
  • B'yachad (Together) Services: A service experience geared for all ages, children and adults alike, bridging traditional High Holy Day prayers and melodies with contemporary sounds and teachings that bring new meaning to the season.

Public School and High Holy Days  

Keeping your children out of school on Rosh  HaShanah and Yom Kippur can be an important part of their Jewish identity formation. It can also be a sign of Jewish self-respect and solidarity. Please contact Rabbi Schwartz if you would like to talk about this decision. If any issues come up for your children regarding missing school on Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur, contact JCRC Director Diane Fisher at (408) 357-7504.
