Children and Youth

At Chochmat HaLev, we love our children!  We have age-appropriate activities for kids 0-8 and youth ages 9+, as well as including special times for them to be part of the main Services, including blessings of the Torah and the Shofar Service.

Childcare for Children 0-8

Childcare will be available for 0 to 8 year olds with certified childcare practitioners   Please Register in Advance.  This program will include High Holy Day themed music, art, puppetry, snacks and more.  Each day will include a spiritual welcome/opening circle, free play, entertainment, and High Holy Day age-appropriate teachings.  Read more about our special Children’s programming.  See Below for Links to Childcare Registration  

Youth 9+ Drop In Programs on the Lawn

We will have special drop-in youth tents for kids 8-13 available during daytime services only. These programs are included with membership or tickets. No Registration Needed. This is not supervised childcare. Kids can move freely between this space and the services. Teen counselors will help kids get involved and this area will host scheduled activities throughout the day, including shofar training, dance and drama, learning a prayer in sign language, and opportunities to do “teshuvah” at an age-appropriate level.
