Gan Shalom is a new and engaging program being offered at WJC on the first Wednesday of every month beginning in October 2024 to all WJC children including our ECC children in the 3s and 4s program (member and non-member) and Religious School children in Gan (Kindergarten). We are thrilled to have ECC teachers, Naomi Feuerstein along with Amanda Netti, lead our Gan Shalom program.

Each month Gan Shalom will focus on creating connections between our ECC and RS communities while learning about Jewish holidays, values, and customs.

Families (fee the same for members and non-members) will be charged $100 per child for 7 sessions or $20 per child per session when signing up before the day of class. Families will be charged $30 per child for each session if they “drop-in” to the class. The time for each session will be 3:45-5:15pm.

Dates for Gan Shalom:
October 9
November 6
December 4

Amanda Netti is an Assistant Teacher in a Toddler 2s class. She recently shared the following: Westchester Jewish Center ECC is such an enjoyable place to work. The staff partner together to provide the children many opportunities to learn and grow. The parents are true partners with us in their children’s education. I look forward to nurturing the curious young students in the Gan Shalom class.
