Training Wheels - Al Galgalim
Hadassah’s Training Wheels ‘Visits’ Israel, Atlanta Jewish Times, April 23, 2013.
Training Wheels began its year on August 11, 2013 with a lively session. Apples and honey! Sounding shofars! Jonah and the whale! Our first session of the year was all about Rosh Hashanah. We painted and decorated "honey bee" honey jars to take home and fill with the sweet stuff! Thanks to Rabbi Glusman, we saw and heard a real shofar, and then made our own. They were made of paper, but they made a very nice (loud!) sound. We threw our "sorries" in the "lake" to observe Tashlich, and told the story of Jonah and the Whale. A sweet treat of apples and raisin-filled challah dipped in honey ended our day. Join us on September 15 in the sukkah!
Come join us as we go around the year “al galgalim” (on wheels). From Shabbat and Rosh Hashanah through the year to Shavuot, we’ll have fun learning about Jewish holidays!
Training Wheels/Al Galgalim, a Jewish family education program created by Hadassah, lets parents and children (ages 3-5) become partners in discovering the joys of being Jewish.
The curriculum activities include songs, stories, crafts, games and holiday foods, all of which enable adults and children to experience together the pleasures of celebrating Shabbat and the Jewish holidays.
The program is about families – parents and children participating in Jewish rituals and spending quality time together. Training Wheels meets nine times throughout the year on Sunday mornings, from 10-12, in the Sandy Springs/Perimeter area and is led by trained Hadassah volunteers.
There is a fee for the full program, but we invite you to participate in your first session at no charge, so you can see what we do in Training Wheels. Give us a try! Though there is no charge for this first session, reservations are a must, as our space is limited. Give your family a precious gift of heritage that can last a lifetime!
Grandparents are invited to bring their grandchildren, or perhaps to give a membership in Training Wheels for parents to use to take children to our sessions.
Please join us as we travel around the year, celebrating Jewish holidays. We look forward to meeting you and your children!
