We are aware that some people may experience a problem registering. There is plenty of space for everyone and no one will be turned away.  You can either e-mail info@areyvut.org with the information (your child’s name, etc.) or simply come on Sunday morning.

To register more than one child – you can register up to 8 per registration- simply use the drop down menu below and if you have any questions or need assistance please contact us.

Join Areyvut for our annual Erev Yom Kippur Chesed Program dedicated in memory of Eliyahu ben Moshe HaCohen and Chiena Miza bat Moshe, Edward and Mitzi Traurig. The Traurig’s were active leaders in their community and represented the values that Areyvut seeks to teach. May their memory be for a blessing and the chesed done in their memory bring an aliyah to their previous neshamot.

The Erev Yom Kippur Chesed Program is a drop off program geared for children in pre-kindergarten through 4th grade, although children of all ages are welcome and of course parents too are welcome to stay.

The program will be taking place in the Beit Midrash at Ma’ayanot Yeshiva High School for Girls and we thank them for their partnership, hospitality, kindness and generosity.

This program is a wonderful way to spend some time before Yom Kippur and to teach your children the importance of actively doing good, helping others and giving back. Projects will benefit communal agencies and participants will be able to take some projects home to enhance their chagim experience.

This year features fun and meaningful projects and an awesome magic show with Joshy K!

Please note that we strongly suggest that you do not send your child in new or special clothing and when getting them dressed know that they may get dirty and plan accordingly.  Additionally, while our staff and volunteers will do our best making sure that everything and everyone is clean and will have t-shirts that your child can wear on top of their clothes, we strongly suggest talking with you child before sending them to the program about making sure that if they are dirty to use the paper towels, wipes and to be sure to wash their hands with soap and water as to not get themselves, their clothes and/or get anything else dirty and we remind you that you are more than welcome to stay and attend, observe and participate in the program.

The fee is $25 per participant.

Please note that we have never raised the price for this event even as other comparable programs have annually and we run this program to a) actively engage kids from a young age in doing good and b) to provide parents some time to prepare for Yom Kippur while knowing your child is safe, having fun and meaningfully engaged.  Our direct costs for this program have increased a great deal over the years and your fee covers our expenses including renting the venue, all project related supplies, snacks and the awesome magic show.

We therefore ask that you please support our commUNITY unity and building programs and you actively include Areyvut in your Erev Yom Kippur charitable giving. All donations and sponsorships are tax deductible. Every donor will receive our sincerest gratitude, appreciation and a thank you and acknowledgement letter for tax purposes. 

We had to turn people away last year and anticipate filling up again this year. Therefore, we encourage you to reserve now to book your spot.

By participating in this program you grant Areyvut permission to post pictures of your child for PR purposes.

We wish you an easy and meaningful fast and encourage you to use these resources to enhance your experience and have a meaningful dialogue with your family.
