JUF Young Families High Holiday Services

Shanah Tovah! Happy New Year!

The Jewish High Holidays begin with Rosh Hashanah, the New Year, and end ten days later with Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. The new year is a joyous time filled with family, friends, and food, but it is also an opportunity to reflect on our actions of the past year, and to consider ways to improve the next.

  • Rosh Hashanah
    Monday-Tuesday, September 30-October 1 (begins at sundown on 9/29)
  • Yom Kippur
    Wednesday, October 9 (begins at sundown on 10/8)

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  2019 High Holy Day Family services that are open to the community. JUF Young Families hopes 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.
