SCARSDALE, N.Y. -- Scarsdale Synagogue Temples Tremont and Emanu-El, a Reform Jewish congregation, will hold an open house at its religious school by on Sunday, May 4, from 9 to 11 a.m.
The school is at 2 Ogden Road in Scarsdale. The event is primarily geared for children from three to eight years old but religious school classes will be in session for children up to eleven years old.
The program will feature an opportunity for children attending the open house to express their reflections on the Jewish holiday calendar, as well as participate in a “sing-down,” in which various well-known songs and prayers will be entertainingly strung continuously together by Cantor Chanin Becker and the school’s music teacher Jennie Berkson.
The morning’s events will begin with a brief Tefilah/worship service, followed by a discussion with parents about the synagogue’s vision for the future of its religious school.
During the open house, visitors will also be able to meet and get to know Senior Rabbi Jeffrey C. Brown, Becker, Rabbi Wendy Pein, Scarsdale Synagogue’s director of lifelong learning, as well as other members of the school’s faculty.
Scarsdale Synagogue Temples Tremont and Emanu-El is a Reform Jewish congregation committed to creating a covenant community of shared lives and real relationships. Founded in 1961, the synagogue was joined by the memberships of Tremont Temple of the Bronx in 1976 and Temple Emanu-El of Southern Westchester in 2008.
