Holiday Celebrations for Children

Children can explore what Being Jewish and Doing Jewish means to them through Jewish culture, literature, history, values and ethics at their own level.

Visit Kol Hadash for children-friendly Jewish celebrations throughout the year. Parents, grandparents and guests are always welcome! All family holiday celebrations are free and open to everyone.
