Want to attend services while your kids play? We are pleased to offer childcare for four services: Rosh Hashanah Evening & Day and Yom Kippur Evening & Day. Children will be cared for by experienced Urban Adamah educators. Childcare will take place both on site at the farm and on the fields and indoor spaces at University Village, a 2-minute walk from Urban Adamah. Childcare will be offered at the following times:

  • Rosh Hashanah Evening- 6:15 – 9:00 pm on Sunday, September 9th (including Special Children’s Service in the Yurt with Jen Miriam – Music, Puppets, and Deep Torah from Miriam’s Well!)

Parents are expected to drop off children at the yurt within 15 minutes of the start of the service and pick up their children promptly after the service ends. Please note that the children may be off-site for much of this time and you may not be able to drop off your child if you arrive later than 15 minutes after the start of the service.

Torah of Awakening: The Jewish Path of Presence

Reb Brian Yosef, and his band BRIAH, have been creating transformational musical services for the past two decades. Reb Brian Yosef also leads weekly gatherings on awakening through Integral Jewish Meditation that are livestreamed for Torah of Awakening members. Join Torah of Awakening first month free, or sign up for free guided meditations and updates at www.TorahOfAwakening.com.

“Spiritual awakening is the realization that you are far more than your thoughts and feelings. Beneath you personality, there’s a radiant field of awareness, free from negativity and connected to the aliveness of the present moment. Integral Jewish Meditation brings to life your potential for awakening in a direct and experiential way, freeing you from stress and opening you to joy, wellness and peace.”
