New this year: Childcare is available for children 6 months and older on the first day of Rosh Hashanah and on Yom Kippur morning. In addition, childcare is available for children 3 years and older for the second day of Rosh Hashanah, Kol Nidre, and Yom Kippur evening.

Note that every child under the age of 3 must be pre-registered, with no exceptions, by Friday, September 23. We cannot accept un-registered, “walk-in” children under the age of 3 as we need to ensure proper childcare/staff ratios for young children. Thanks for your understanding!
