The Adams Street Shul
High Holiday Babysitting
We are pleased to offer babysitting during the High Holy Days at Adams Street, for three-year-olds through eight-year-olds.
You must sign up in advance. Children will not be admitted into the Elmer Lippin Social Hall unless they are already enrolled and pre-paid. This is to ensure that the number of babysitters is sufficient to safely care for the children.
Babysitting will be from 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM on both days of Rosh Hashanah, and from 9:30 am to 2:00 PM on Yom Kippur; and during evening services on Yom Kippur (Kol Nidre and Maariv on Friday night; and Ne'ilah on Saturday night). Five sessions in all.
Children will participate in age-appropriate davening, games, and activities, under the supervision of professional child-care providers. Snacks and a light dairy lunch will be served them.
For members of the shul, the cost is $18 per child per session, with a family maximum of $140. Non-members may enroll children for $25 per child per session.
Enrollment forms were included in the high holiday mailing. For help with enrolling, or for more information, contact Nechama Fleischmann at 617-527-0296.
Chesed Committee Contacts
We are an independent, historic Orthodox shul that serves a diverse congregation and the broader community. We provide a place for davening (prayer), learning, and spiritual growth; and a social environment where we celebrate holidays and life-cycle events together.
We are haimish — a warm, caring, welcoming community where everyone can contribute and be active in the life of the congregation, build on the traditions of our founders, and link the Jewish past to the future.
A Modern Community
We hope you will visit us when you visit Boston. If you live here, we hope you will participate in our educational classes, religious services, and holiday celebrations.
