Introducing our Rosh Hashanah Youth Team!

Read about our team members below and get an idea of what the children will be learning during their special services this year!

 

Taking our youngest group, catering for ages 0-4 years (held in the toddlers’ room off the Succah), we have Nachamah Orenstein and Raquel Amit. They will be leading a singalong style session incorporating Rosh Hashanah themes, foods, stories and other activities.  Parents are strongly encouraged to participate.

Nachamah:

Favourite holiday destination: Israel, because there’s no place like home!!!!!!!
Would love to meet: Mary Poppins – I could really do with a umbrella that flies me from place to place, and a bag as big as hers!!!
Really scared of: Traffic Wardens! They are just so sneaky!
Worst Habit: Driving too fast. I know I’m not the only car on the road, but an experience in my car is a little similar to a rollercoaster ride, so as long as you’re seated, belted and holding on tight, after a few turns you will make it out alright; just a little dizzy.

Raquel:

Taking our next group, ages 5-10 years old are Ingryd London and Hava Kranat.  They will be leading a high energy service full of Rosh Hashanah facts, games, quizzes, points and prizes. You will definitely come away learning a thing or two! This group will be held in a classroom off the Succah:
