Your child is welcome to attend our High Holy Day services. If you prefer to use a babysitter, you may register your child(ren) for one or more babysitting sessions. Babysitting is on the premises, in the nursery school area, giving young children the ability to play and have fun in a safe environment under the watchful eyes of our trained babysitters.
Registration:Required in ADVANCE. Please Register Online and Pay Online (or send payment in separately). All children must be registered in advance. Due to staffing requirements, we cannot accept walk-ins. Babysitting will include age appropriate activities.
Lunch: Please pack your child a dairy or parve lunch. All lunches and snacks must be peanut and nut free.
Do not send a child with a cold, fever, diarrhea or contagious illness! If your child is not feeling well, have him/her stay home.
Does Your Child Need a Break During Services?
The downstairs conference room will be available for young children to relax, play and wind down. Children must be accompanied by a parent or other adult caretaker. There is no charge or registration/advance notice required.
