|High Holiday Babysitting|
We are pleased to offer babysitting during the High Holy Days at Adams Street, for toddlers through eight-year-olds, 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.
You must sign up in advance. Children will not be admitted to play in the Elmer Lippin Social Hall unless they are enrolled. This is to ensure that the number of babysitters is sufficient to safely care for the children.
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 will be included in the high holiday mailing. For help with enrolling, or for more information, contact Nechama Fleischmann by email to or by phone at 617-527-0296.

The Adams Street Shul, in cooperation with the Brandeis Orthodox Organization (BOO), is hosting a student Shabbaton on September 12th and 13th.
Brandeis students will be leading the services, singing and giving divrei Torah at meals, and experiencing all that makes our Adams Street so special... You!
On Friday there will be a congregational dinner at the shul with the students. On Saturday, the students will be hosted for lunch in members' homes. Email to volunteer to host a lunch or to request inclusion as a guest.
The students will enjoy a historical tour of the shul at 4:30 PM, followed by a shiur by Rabbi David Pardo at 5:30 PM, followed by mincha/third meal/maariv beginning at 6:30 PM.

|Rabbi David Pardo at Adams Street|
On Shabbat Ki Tavo, Saturday September 13th, return to shul at 5:30 PM (an hour before mincha) for a shiur by Rabbi David Pardo.
Rabbi David Pardo and his wife Ariel are Co-Directors of The Seif Jewish Learning Initiative on Campus. This is a program of the Orthodox Union in partnership with the Brandeis University Hillel.
Rabbi Pardo received his BA from UCLA and smikha from Yeshiva University (YU), with supplementary education from the Isralight Institute and YU’s Center for the Jewish Future. Most importantly, David learned from following around some really interesting people.
A native Angelino with no known conflicting or career threatening team affiliations, Rabbi Pardo realized as an undergrad that working on college campus was the place to be, and JLIC was the greatest way to do it. He’s lived in different corners of the world, working with different populations of young adults to build supercharged Jewish communities.
The shiur is free and all are welcome.
