Or Chadash is pleased to announced its pre-school programming for the Jewish High Holy Days (Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur) and this new 2013-2014 academic year. Join us as your child will be surrounded by our dynamic clergy, our educator and our teaching assistants all working together to deliver holiday-oriented programming for children, parents and caregivers, using hands-on activities while encouraging a love of learning and Jewish life in a creative, supportive and warm environment.
Our Rosh Hashanah Children's Service will be held Thursday, September 5 at 3:00 PM, and our Yom Kippur Children's Service will be held on Saturday, September 14 at 2:00 PM. All are invited and encouraged to celebrate the holidays with us. During the Rosh Hashanah Children's service, Rabbi Forman and Student Cantor Kathy Gohr will engage the children with meaningful stories and activities. Families will learn the Shofar Song, as well as participate in a learning activity introducing traditional and contemporary customs to celebrate the Jewish New Year. On Yom Kippur, children and families will learn about the story of Jonah and the importance of saying we are sorry for our mistakes. For both programs, a short service will be incorporated in the activities.
Temple Tots is a one-hour program, again led by Rabbi Forman, Student Cantor Kathy Gohr, Educator Betsy Zalaznick and our Teaching Assistants. It offers enriched programming, story time, music and craft projects for pre-school aged children.
