Shabbat and Holiday Child Care

On Shabbat and holiday mornings, starting at 10:00 am, there is a playgroup for children up to age four. Supervised by Liz Rios and her attentive staff, the children enjoy themselves with toys, books, an indoor jungle gym, and more. Liz and Shanade lead the children in song and stories. At 11:00 am, there is circle time featuring a Tot service.

An adult must accompany any child under two years old. Childcare is available every Shabbat, even during the summer months.
