High Holidays with Makom 5777/2016
Hart House – University of Toronto
Makom is delighted to offer WARM, SPIRITUAL, and PARTICIPATORY High Holiday services fusing TRADITION & CREATIVITY, MUSICALITY & REFLECTION. For our fifth year, we’ll be gathering in beautiful Hart House for Rosh Hashanah on October 3 and 4 and for Yom Kippur on October 11 and 12.
NEW! FAMILY SERVICES
This year, we’re excited to offer FAMILY SERVICES on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur day. Led by Rabbi Julia Appel, Makom’s Director of Education and Family Programming, Family Services will include prayers, songs, and stories to meaningfully engage adults and children together. Family Services are egalitarian with mixed seating, 11-12pm both days.
We’ll also be offering children’s programming on both days of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur, 10am-11am. Our educators will lead engaging, thoughtful, and fun activities, divided into older and younger age groups, to explore the meaning of the holidays. Parents are welcome, but not required, to attend children’s programming with their kids.
Full childcare will be provided throughout adult services on Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. Younger and older children will play in separate rooms under our babysitters’ supervision.
