Everything You Need to Know About High Holidays at CBH

High Holidays at CBH are meaningful, musical, even fun.  Our services are serious but kid-friendly, with special areas for young children so they can stay with their parents as well as baby sitting and great programming for primary school kids.  Our lay cantor, choir, and musicians add to the beauty of the occasion and involve us all in its celebration.  See below for everything you need to know.

Questions?  Call 908-277-0200

Children's Programming                                                                                                  

On the first day of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, baby-sitting provided for babies and toddlers; children's programs for pre-school - grade 4; youth service, and special discussions for teens. Many children enjoy our musical and accessible main services, too, and they're welcome to bring their books and quiet toys.  A special area will be set up in the Sanctuary where young children can play quietly with their parents.

Tashlich

Tashlich will immediately follow the Rosh Hashanah morning service (after we have all had a snack at the oneg).  Please plan to join us for a brief stroll to the nearby river to cast bread on the water in this meaningful service.

Break-the-Fast                                                                                                                      

As usual, we will mark the end of Yom Kippur with a communal Break-the-Fast dinner, immediately following the close of afternoon services at about 6:30 pm 

Parking                                                                                                                                   

Parking is available in our lot and on the street.  Handicapped parking is also available. We would like to accommodate everyone who needs a handicap parking space.
