Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Taste of Gan

The Last Taste of Gan is Sunday, May 20 !

Kindly RSVP to our education director, Barbara Weisman at or to Gan teacher Eileen Kupersmith at by Wednesday, April 4 to ensure a free spot this spring (six classes in April and May 2018) for your child or children!

What is Gan? It is Or Hadash's Religious School class for children in kindergarten and first grade! 

Or Hadash is a warm, welcoming, egalitarian community with many lovely families. We welcome EVERYBODY with open arms. If your family is interfaith, you will find wonderful connections within our community.

Children will experience stories, crafts, songs, Jewish values, introductory prayers in a warm and welcoming professional setting. Our wonderful teachers and sweet, welcoming students look forward to greeting their new friends. This is the Jewish value of Hachnasat Orchim or Welcoming Guests. We practice what we teach!

Open to students entering kindergarten or first grade next year. Those children may be starting a new school next fall, so this is an opportunity to lessen multiple new experiences at once then. Try something new this spring!

If you are not a member of Or Hadash, the following are required:

◆ Fill out paperwork on your child so we can accommodate their needs and get to know them - allergies, pronouns and other information that makes them who they are

◆ Stay on the premises until your child is comfortable but certainly for the first three weeks at the very least. You’ll be greeted with coffee and camaraderie!

We can’t wait to meet you and your family!
