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.
