High Holydays Family & Teen Programming at Gann Academy

We have a wonderful team of service leaders, youth musicians, songleaders, and childcare professionals providing youth and family programming for Rosh Hashanah (September 15 & 16) and Yom Kippur (September 24 & 25)! On each holiday, there will be two family services: one for children ages 5 and younger, and one for 1st-7th graders. We also have a teen program for our post-B'Mitzvah aged members. For families with siblings spanning both family services, please pick the service that will best suit your family (siblings of any age are welcome at either family service)!
