Will you be our guest for Rosh Hashanah & Yom Kippur?

This Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, experience the true beauty and meaning of these Days of Awe. At Union Temple of Brooklyn, a Reform Jewish congregation, you'll enjoy a modern approach to tradition, filled with a rich balance of Hebrew, English, and music.

Children learn about these special days, too — at their very own services on the mornings of Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur. We conduct two services for kids each day: one for toddlers and preschoolers up to age 5; another for children ages 6 to 12. What a wonderful way to introduce your child to our heritage!

 We look forward to seeing you. L'shanah tovah!
