Are you wondering how to teach your children about the Jewish Holidays? Join us on Friday mornings to understand the way time is sanctified in the Jewish Calendar. We will learn about the cycle of the whole year and how the calendar connects us to nature and the environment. We will spend one lesson each on Rosh Has Shanah, Yom Kippur, and Sukkot. We will explore the meanings and messages of the holidays. Learn how to make them meaningful for EVERY member of the family. Not Jewish? No Problem! This course is for everyone who has children or grandchildren at the J.
