Apples and Honey

High Holy Days program for Families & Children, 2022/5783.

Apples & Honey Family Programs are offered as a gift to the community. In order to support our preparations and to ensure the safety of all members of our community, pre-registration is required.

Join us for lively and engaging services created just for families led by Rabbi Seth Castleman and Bob Smith. During our family experiences, in order to ensure the safety and well-being of our children, parental participation and supervision is required.

We are delighted to offer a wide array of in-person opportunities with Zoom options, when possible. All Apples & Honey Family Services will follow the current CBH COVID19 Protocol regarding masking and vaccination. The CBH COVID Task Force has determined that our mask mandate is in place for indoor programs and services until further notice. Outdoor masking is voluntary. Please note new locations for some of our Family Services; these updated locations allow more space for a safer Covid experience as well as the opportunity to experience the sanctity of the High Holidays.
