Adas Israel will offer babysitting for children, ages three (3) to five (5), who are toilet trained.  (Sorry, no children in diapers). Pre-registration is required by August 1. No “walk up” children will be admitted. Space is limited due to space and child/staff supervision ratios.  There will a $36 charge per child. 

Babysitting is offered at the following times: 

1st Day of Rosh Hashanah: 9:30 am–1:00 pm
Kol Nidre: 6:15 pm – 9:30 pm
Yom Kippur Day: 9:30 am – 4:00 pm

Babysitting confirmations and child name tags will be sent and must be brought with you to check in. If you have not received a confirmation by September 1 please contact Elinor Tattar at 202-362-4433 x147 or by e-mail at

Babysitting is located on the 2nd floor Gan level supervised by Gan teacher, Ana de los Reyes. Because we do not have facilities for infants, we encourage parents with children under 3 to make private arrangements for their care. We have also set aside a special room as a Parents’ Room (room 215), where parents may sit with their young children or breast feed. Please do not leave children unaccompanied in this room. Changing tables are located in the main level restrooms and Kay Hall restrooms.

For the safety of your child, we ask that you not leave the building during services. Please pick your children up from babysitting if you are leaving the building. In addition, please do not ask anyone else to pick up your children, as it makes their security and safety difficult to maintain.
