High Holiday Children's/Family Services 5783

Our Children's/Family Services are open to everyone but are especially suitable for children and their families. Tickets are NOT required. Feel free to bring friends, and please make sure they are in compliance with our vaccination and masking protocols.

This year, Family Services will be held OUTDOORS on the front lawn of the Winnetka Congregational Church (725 Pine Street) at 1:30 PM on both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. 

  • Please bring lawn chairs and/or blankets for your family.
  • Our outdoor service will be mask-optional. 
  • Should the weather not cooperate, we will move the service indoors. Masks will be optional indoors, but there will be a designated mask-required section. (See details below.)

If your child/ren is/are interested in reading during Family Services on Rosh Hashanah and/or Yom Kippur, please contact Bibi Patt.

COVID Protocols:
Per the Congregation’s vote at the May 2022 meeting, in order to attend in-person High Holiday services, everyone must be symptom-free, and everyone age 5 and older must have all doses in the primary series (one dose of J&J or two doses of Pfizer or Moderna) and one booster. (It is highly recommended that people over the age of 50 have a second booster, and that children ages 6 months to 5 years be vaccinated.)

Should the weather not cooperate:

  • Should the weather not cooperate, we will move the service indoors at the Winnetka Congregational Church.
  • Masks will be optional indoors, but there will be a designated mask-required section.
  • The mask-required section will be physically separated from the mask-optional section to the extent possible. 
  • All who sit in the mask-required section are asked to wear KN95 or N95 masks and will be expected keep their masks on at all times, covering their noses and mouths, while in the section. We will provide KN95 masks for those who need one.
