Child Care Services during High Holidays

Congregation Kadimah Toras-Moshe is pleased once again to offer babysitting for children 6 months old and up on the High Holidays. Babysitting offers a supervised, safe play space.

HOURS: 10:00AM-2:00PM on Rosh Hashana (Day 1 & Day 2) & Yom Kippur.

Light snacks and drinks will be provided. Lunch will be provided on Yom Kippur only to allow the parents to daven longer while their children can enjoy lunch upstairs in the shul.

  • Parents need to connect with the babysitter when they drop off their chid(ren). Discuss food allergies or other information the babysitter should be aware of. You should remain on the premises during the entire time your child(ren) is/are registered with the childcare providers. Since there is a limited number of children we can accommodate, we need to know as soon as possible to have babysitters in place. And, I need to know the exact count for lunch, snacks and beverages.

  • To register your child(ren) for babysitting, CLICK HERE. Please let us know no later than September 12.

If your guest’s children need babysitting services, or if you have any questions please contact Cheryl Sisel at
