Puppetry is a powerful tool for entertaining and educating and puppets take children and adults into a magical realm of wonder and joy. Join Jen Miriam Altman, Alon Altman, Raizel the Camel and Raizel’s puppet friends for a Yom Kippur service geared towards tots. The service includes candle-lighting; singalongs with guitar, drums, and other instruments; puppets; and dancing with scarves. This is a great way to introduce young children to Yom Kippur!
