B'Yachad Fall Family Holiday Programs

B'Yachad: Holidays for Kids at JRC

We are very excited for our plans for this fall! Throughout this year, we will celebrate our theme: Shevet Anu B’Yachad, We Dwell Together. This Hebrew phrase is adapted from the song Hinei Mah Tov, from Psalm 133, which states, “How good it is and how pleasant, when people dwell together.” Indeed, how wonderful it is that we get to be together again, to learn, grow, and explore this year. In-person Religious School will begin October 3rd (register here). Throughout September will have many opportunities to "dwell" together as we reconnect, meet one another, and get a taste of re-gathering in our Jewish home.

Throughout the year, we will offer holiday opportunities for kids and their families: B'Yachad (together).

This fall, we are excited to announce these programs for families with children of all ages!! Each event will include a variety of ways to participate--based on ages and interests.  Activities will include: a maker space, story walks, Lego builds, art projects, dancing, and more!

8/28, 6 - 7:30 pm: Kick off Family Havdallah and Selichot
Get the school year and holiday season started with your temple commnity! We will gather in the breezeway at Judea Reform, get to know each other, and sound the shofar!

9/12, 9:30 - 11 am: Tashlich Extravaganza
Bring your family and get started right in the New Year. We will have fun, play games, cast our sins into the water, and even hang out with a goat! We will start in the breezeway, and then head to the tashlich location.

9/19, 9:30 - 11 am: Let's Get Ready to Sukkah
Together, we will explore Sukkot, and finish building and decorating the Sukkah! This event will be near the Sukkah!

9/26, 9:30 - 11 am: Sundaes on Sunday in the Sukkah
Celebrate in the sukkah with lulav, Etrog, and ice cream! This event will be in and near the Sukkah.

Registration is required for the events, so we know who to expect, and so that we can plan for appropriate space to allow for distancing, as well as providing the correct number of supplies.

Safety Notes:
These programs will be held outdoors and distanced.  Masks will be required (except when eating--when there will be additional distancing). Restrooms will be available inside (1 family at a time).

In case of inclement weather, we will postpone these events. We will contact you by email at least 2 hours before the event is scheduled to begin.

If you have any questions or want more information, please contact Rabbi Elisa Koppel, Education Director, at
Please choose all events that your family will attend, so that we can plan appropriately.
