IFFP’s High Holy Days 2018

IFFP’s 2018 High Holidays Services will be led by Lay-Cantor Jodi Kanter and Rev. Julia Jarvis at The Unitarian Universalist Church of Silver Spring!


Rosh Hashanah

Sun. Sep. 9th, 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Erev Rosh Hashanah

Mon. Sep. 10th, 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Rosh Hashanah

We will again offer a children’s service on Rosh Hashanah (Monday morning)!

IFFP’s Children’s Service is a self-contained service, including the blowing of the shofar, designed for the entire family. It will have the substance that adults will recognize from more traditional services while adding special elements to engage children. Our aim is to create meaningful connections for the children to the prayers and rituals associated with the holiday, and our hope is that parents and children will participate in the service with us (as opposed to parents just watching their children experience it). Please note:  this is not a drop-off service; we would like at least one parent to attend the service with the children.


Yom Kippur

Tue. Sep. 18th, 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m., Kol Nidre (Child-Friendly)

Wed. Sep. 19th, 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m., Morning Service & Children’s Service
