The Nehar Shalom Family Learning Circle is a family education program for children ages 4-6 and their parents. Learning together through stories, music, art and drama, children and parents will share in Jewish ways of expression and celebration that can be continued at home. A Jewish framework and approach will be given to values such as diversity, social justice, peace and community.

Easily accessible and inclusive, non-judgmental and non-threatening, the Learning Circle will offer a joyful place of Jewish connection and learning. All manner of Jewish families will be warmly welcomed, families with mother and father, families with same-sex parents, families with one Jewish parent, families with two Jewish parents, inter-racial families, families with biological parents and families with adoptive parents, families of children with physical challenges and families of children with learning challenges. All will have a place in the Learning Circle by the hearth (there is a fireplace in the sanctuary of Nehar Shalom!).

Tuition is $230. (Tuition is $115 for each additional child per family.) Financial assistance is available. The first class is Sunday, Sept. 10, from 10-11:30 a.m.
