This service, accompanied by our High Holy Day choir, beautiful readings, prayers and a meaningful sermon, is also musically enhanced by the haunting cello and piano arrangement of Kol Nidre by Max Bruch. Using the Mishkan Hanefesh Machzor, this worship experience captures the significance of the holiest day in the Jewish calendar by asking us to reflect, repent and renew. Appropriate for all vaccinated adults and children 13 years and older.
Families with children 5 and under are invited to join Shaare Emeth clergy and Shirlee Green Preschool staff for a Yom Kippur experience designed especially for our youngest friends and their families. We’ll sing, dance, and learn about a magic word: SORRY!

For the first time in many years, Shaare Emeth is proud to offer a Yom Kippur Family Service where the entire family can reflect and share together. This one-hour worship experience, led by Shaare Emeth clergy and teen leaders, is filled with music, community blessings, a meaningful story and more, and is most appropriate for families with children ages 6-to-12.
