Join the Vilna Shul with your entire family to celebrate the Jewish High Holidays together! Family services bring children and families together with an interactive, song-based holiday singing and ritual. Service ends with the blowing of the shofar.

The family services are designed for children ages 10 and younger. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Have a child older than 10? We would love for them to help lead the service with our song leaders! Email Lynne Krasker Schultz, director of programs, at to explore options.

Generous underwriting from Dr. Daniel Bley and Margi Gad allows us to offer family services at no cost to participants! Additional donations allow us to offer more programs at lower costs.

If you are looking for adult services, please click here for information and registration.

Advanced registration is required for children’s services.
