How much does this cost?
To get the daily Chitas emails and booklets? Nothing. You can choose to pay to get Chitas a week at a time, you can sponsor a day’s Chitas for a child’s birthday or another reason, or feel free to donate!
When do you prepare the Chitas?
At this point, we do it the night before, after the littlest Chitas helpers are in bed. Sometimes it gets very late and one of us has to wake up early.
How long does it take to do this?
Usually it takes about 4 hours all told. We can now reuse materials from last year, but we need to edit them, and are also making more booklets in more languages!
Who is paying for this?
Nobody, yet. We originally started this for our own kids, and nobody pays you for things you do for your own children! Now that it has become its own full-time project, we are starting to look for sponsors to help us make sure it continues and grows.
How did it start?

Do you have any plans for later?
Yes, plenty! Some have said that older kids don’t want coloring sheets, but they would love worksheets. We have some exciting ideas for the Shabbos edition so that there is more to learn on Shabbos. We would like to add some videos of teaching parts of Chitas. All we need is more time! 🙂
Are you going to make this into a book?
We will see! Right now it would take a lot of work to make the Chitas into a book.
I live in Australia, can I get it a day earlier?
We tried, believe me we tried! 🙂 Our email service has an option to send at 9:00 pm (for example) in the recipient’s local timezone. However it didn’t seem to work so well, because it’s not perfect at detecting your timezone. That meant some people were getting it even LATER than usual! Oops. Now, you have a (paid) option to sign up for the Week in Advance emails.
I sent you an email, why didn’t I get an answer?
We’re very sorry! We get tens of emails every day from all different people and places, and lots of days we have enough time to read them, but not enough time to answer. You might get an answer to a REALLY OLD email sometimes, or feel free to resend it as a gentle nudge!
Why didn’t you answer my question?
Probably because you didn’t ask it yet! Post a comment to ask now.
