High Holiday Babysitting

FleischmannNechama 150x200We 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.

Musicians Wanted

KhanukaevMaestroSergey Sergey Khanukaev, our member and accomplished pianist and musical conductor, would like to organize a professional instrumental ensemble of children ages 9 to 16 to perform a variety of musical pieces focused on Jewish themes. 

After a series of rehearsals and preparations he would launch a series of concerts in Boston. This is a highly innovative idea, since there are currently no children's ensembles that are focused primarily on performing the masterpieces of Jewish music. 

Dr. Khanukaev would very much like to discuss his proposal with prospective parents and students.  Please contact him at 617-669-7778 or at to discuss ways in which you might collaborate.

If You Feed Them, They Will Come
Bert Grand at the Shul Centennial Red Sox OutingWe hope you have enjoyed the pleasant socializing each week after Shabbat morning services. Have you ever wondered how the shul manages to provide the kiddush even on weeks when it has not been sponsored? 

The Grand Family Kiddush Fund sponsors the kiddush whenever no one else has.  Even if you cannot sponsor a kiddush on your own, small donations in any amount are always welcome.  Simply designate that your donation is for The Grand Family Kiddush Fund. 

It's a nice way to honor someone, celebrate a simcha, or memorialize a loved one.  You can donate online now.
