The Temple Aliyah High Holidays Family Space and Nursing Room
Children are ALWAYS welcome in the main service. Please keep your children close and encourage respectful synagogue behavior. We have drop off options for children from crawlers and older. In addition, all families are welcome to use Temple Aliyah's Family Space, located in the Library. Here, children may move, play and make a little more noise. A live feed of the main sanctuary service will be available there.
Mothers are welcome to nurse in any space, anywhere in the synagogue. If you prefer a quieter or more private space, please use Temple Aliyah's High Holidays Nursing Room, located in the Learning Center.
There are also High Holiday programs for your school-age children (K-12)
