Do I need a Machzor?

What is the difference between Sing Yeladim and the Family Service?
Sing Yeladim is a sing-along program for very young children (newborn to 3 yrs) and a caregiver led by Risa Waldman. There is a cap on attendance. The Family Service is a service with music and stories, appropriate for slightly older children (2-6 yr olds and their families) led by Rabbi Debra Landsberg and Cantor Judy Adelman Gershon. There is no cap on attendance. Feel free to bring your whole family. There is a slight overlap in the age range. Choose the program that you think is the most appropriate for your family. 

I have more questions / I need more help.
We are here for you! Please contact Carli Portman: or 416-449-3880 ext.215. If you need help and Carli is unavailable for the Holy Day, you will receive an automated response that will include other help options.
