Children’s Services are Open to Members and Non-Members Alike

Summit, N.J. (August 19, 2013) –– Temple Sinai, the Reform congregation in Summit, will again be welcoming families to celebrate the Jewish New Year at their High Holy Days Children’s Services.  Open to members and non-members alike, the half-hour Rosh Hashanah Children’s Service will take place at 2:30 PM on Thursday, September 5; while the half-hour Yom Kippur Children’s Service will take place at 2:30 PM on Saturday, September 14, 2013.

“These fun and interactive services are a warm and special way for families to enjoy the high holy days with their children,” says Rabbi Stuart Gershon, who will lead the services along with Cantor Marina Shemesh.  Amy Damast, Director of the Temple’s Early Childhood Education Program, will tell a story, and children, parents, and grandparents will be invited to sing along with the many fun songs and beautiful prayers whose lyrics are provided to all who attend.

Eminently accessible and requiring no prior knowledge of Hebrew or religious ritual, the services offer special moments in Jewish tradition, including inviting the children to touch the Torah scrolls.  The Rosh Hashanah service is also followed at 3:30 PM by the Tashlich Ceremony in Shepard Kollock Park in Chatham.  Again, members and non-members alike are welcome to join in this symbolic “casting off” of their sins by tossing bread crumbs into the Passaic River.

“We invite everyone to join us in celebrating the joys of the New Year,” says Rabbi Gershon.  “Our goal is to open the doors of our house and welcome you into our sanctuary to enjoy the best of our cultural and spiritual traditions,” he explains.

No RSVP is necessary.  Anyone who wishes to take part in these special services should simply enter the Temple through the portico entrance.

I like to think I was invited, but according to the Royal Guards and the Thames Valley Police I was not.  But more about that later.
