Children at Services
We welcome children to attend services with their parents; children ages 2 and up may purchase tickets at a discounted rate of $18. While we will not be providing childcare, the yurt will be available as a quiet space with some crafts and activities and the farm will be accessible for exploring, as long as children are supervised by an adult or parent-designated babysitter. Babysitters do not need to buy a ticket. Parents are responsible for their children.
The Rosh Hashanah Evening service will include a Special Children’s Service with Jen Miriam – Music, Puppets, and Deep Torah from Miriam’s Well! This service will take place from 6:30 – 7:30 pm in the yurt. Additionally, we will be hosting a campfire for children of all ages after the children’s service. Parents or babysitters must be present to supervise their children at all times, including during the children’s 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.”
