Gan Ideal - Preschool Summer Camp

Monday, July 8, 20249:00 amFriday, July 26, 20243:00 pm

This July, we are piloting a preschool program called Gan Ideal for 3-to-5-year-olds, providing families with an option over summer break for their children to explore their Jewish heritage with other little people their age. We’ve curated captivating experiences to engage these young ones in continuous activities, allowing them to learn about their Jewish values and traditions while having fun! We strongly believe every Jewish child has the right to a Jewish education, and there is no better time than the summer to be exposed to these teachings.
