Check out the initiatives below taking place next week. If there are other ways we can support you as a Jewish Community Professional please get in touch and let us know.
At this challenging time, we would like to extend our love and support to you, your loved ones, and the communities you serve. Stay healthy in mind and body. We should know more normal times very soon.

Parent-Child Seder Preparation Learning Activity

Tuesday 31 March & Thursday 2 April, 11:00–11:45 CEST, Zoom

In this series of two sessions, we will be giving parents and children (approximately ages 6-12) an opportunity to explore together aspects of the haggada through art and illustration. Each session will take a page of the haggada, and we will briefly look at the text of the haggada together. Then the parent-child chavruta (study pair) will be asked to look at the illustration on the page and interpret it, effectively using it as a commentary on the text of the haggada. Finally, the child  together with their parent will draw their own illustration as a commentary on the haggada. We will then come together and share our ideas and illustrations.
