Family and Kids Get Higher

Music and high holiday inspiration for all ages.

This year, choose from a full suite of programs, designed just for your family. Kids and grown-ups alike are invited to join us for one or two family services and drop-in to our Museum of Awe, a series of interactive installations that invite you to reflect and respond to the themes and questions of the High Holidays! We will also offer a special program just for tweens and teens.

If you would like your child to attend the main service with you, you’ll need to purchase a ticket to the main service. If you and your children only want to attend the family service and family programs, you only need to register for the “family service only” ticket.
