This year, for the first time, we are offering a family-oriented spiritual preparation program before the children’s light procession. There will be dramatic storytelling and a chance to do our own spiritual intention setting before the children bring the light, literally, into the end of the holiday.

The program begins at 6:45 PM at both SPSA and Frankel Hall—you should go to whichever location you are registered for Minha and Ne’ilah.

How to Join Us

To join the Ne’ilah Family Experience, members should register for community-wide Minha and Ne’liah services as part of your High Holy Day registration, via the registration link you have received from our membership team. Then email Deena to request the link to join the Family Experience.

We believe parents should feed their children anywhere and in any way—including in  the Sanctuary. However, if dedicated space feels like the right choice, there will be a lactation space available for feeding and pumping.
