The Shabbat Morning Younger-Children’s Program: to run on Saturday mornings, at the same time as our services, for those ages three to eight years old. It is a continuation and enhancement of our present program which will have crafts, stories, songs and other approaches to what is occurring at Shabbat that day in the chapel where, of course, children are also always welcome to join their adults, who are welcome in the children’s room as well.
The teacher is Leanne Stevens, who has experience as a supplemental Jewish school teacher at a liberal synagogue in the GTA, and has been a long-time camper and then counsellor at Camp George in Ontario. She also brings to us her background attending Jewish Sunday school throughout her own childhood, as well as years of working one on one with young children of differing abilities. Leanne has an honours bachelor of arts degree from Ryerson University, where she currently works in governance.
As always, children are welcome to drop in to the monthly sessions of both of our Shabbat morning services, and there is no fee. But we hope that parents and grandparents will see their ways to making this a regular part of the shul experience every month.
Rabbi Goldberg will be overseeing the educational content of the children’s program, and is also the teacher’s supervisor.
