Children's services will be led by our community song leader, Aviv Kammay and Shaarei Shamayim parents. They will be held in Courtyard classroom A/B at the First Unitarian Society. Please enter through the Atrium doors. Please register for children's services so we know how many people to expect. We will also have discussions for 6th-8th graders and 9th-12th graders. Please register for these discussions.

Jeff Spitzer-Resnick will lead the Avodah gathering. This is an opportunity for everyone to bring offerings of music, poetry, and stories.

Judge Everett Mitchell will be our featured speaker in the afternoon.

Our Neilah service begins with twenty minutes of meditation and chanting. It ends with a final shofar blast and havdalah. If you are at home, you may wish to use your own havdalah set.
