High Holiday Childcare 5775

Shevet Achim is pleased to offer childcare for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.  We are hiring professional babysitters as well as people to do games/sports with the more active children.   The minimal cost to cover staffing is just $20 PER FAMILY and that covers all the offered sessions for both days of Rosh Hashanah and 2 sessions on Yom Kippur.   You need to signup at high-holiday-childcare-5775 on the website to tell us your children's names and to pay. Please do so in advance. Signup closes at noon on Wednesday, September 24th.
