Child Safety at the Bayit

To ensure a safe and enjoyable program, only children who are registered for High Holiday childcare will be permitted to attend.  

If you do not have private childcare arrangements off site, your children MUST either be registered for HIR Childcare or sit with you in services (seat required).  To maximize the safety of our children and to maintain a meaningful prayer experience throughout the building, children may not loiter in the hallways.
A playroom will also be available during all daytime High Holiday services.  Children in the playroom require parental supervision.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact David Fain, or 718-796-4730 x 240
Thank you for your cooperation, and Shana Tova!

Our neighbors at the Atria have generously agreed to allow us access to their yard for free play during High Holiday services. Please check this box to give consent for your children to participate.  NOTE: Only children accompanied by designated HIR child care providers will be allowed to use the Atria yard.
