  • Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur at Bendigamos! We are expecting very special, accessible and inspiring services. There will be a lot of singing, we will facilitate a special playing room for the children Furthermore, we offer a tasty kiddush after the Rosh Hashana services and some food and drinks after Yom Kippur to break the fast. Participation is completely free of charge, but donations are very welcome, especially so we can cover the costs for the prayer books and the food..

    Thank you for letting us know you will be attending the service(s) in advance. This enables us to make sure we have enough chairs and books during the service(s), and plenty of food after Yom Kippur.

    Bendigamos has created special prayer books so the service is more accessible for everyone. We made two versions: Hebrew with Dutch translation and phonetic (with Dutch translation in the Yom Kippur version). A prayer book costs around €25 and you can order one for yourself! This means that they will be ready for you at the service(s) and you can take them home afterwards. If you want this, could you let us know how much prayer books you want and which one?

    I would like these order these prayer books for €25 per book
