Solomon Schechter Day School of Greater Boston invites preschool directors and teachers to a
Professional Development Evening.
"What’s Jewish About Butterflies?" will explore essential tools for easily integrating Jewish content and values into the daily life of the preschool classroom. Our conversation will equip educators with Jewish resources to enhance any classroom topic – from dinosaurs to pumpkins and from the post office to butterflies – in a natural, daily way. Join us to learn from Jewish early childhood expert, Maxine Segal Handelman, and her well-known book, What’s Jewish About Butterflies?
