Children & Teens

Children and teens are welcome at all our adult services.  

Although we are not running dedicated children’s services by year group, do consider booking one of the Toddler, Family or Family Explanatory Services happening on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur.  

Please note that bookings must be made for each child attending via the main online booking form. Due to limited numbers in Toddler Services, we ask that one adult attends per child. Children MUST be accompanied by an adult in all services.

We are excited to be launching our new Children’s High Holyday Machzor at the various family services this year. 

Whilst we don’t have a dedicated teen service this year, we are continuing our tradition of having a teen-led Mincha service on Yom Kippur afternoon. Do also look out for teens’ activities that will be run by Noam over the High Holyday period.
