Temple Israel in Sharon is pleased to announce the scheduled launch of our new Sifriyah “library” zone for children and their parents.  The Sifriyah zone is an initiative to offer families with young children in our community a meeting and drop in location for programs, workshops and pure enjoyment of our newly refurbished library.   The “Zone” will be open every day starting Thursday, September 13, 2012 with special programs every Tuesday and Thursday from 10:30-11:30. 

The first scheduled program for the “Zone”, Thursday, September 13th, will be a Rosh Hashanah program.   All programs are free to the community and no RSVP’s are necessary.  Future Tuesday/Thursday program themes will include Jewish holidays, Israeli dancing, Parsha Spot Theater, Storytelling and Open Play, to name a few.  The new Sifriyah zone is supported by a grant by CJP’s Innovation Grants Committee, the Temple Israel Brotherhood & Sisterhood and Hertz Nursery School.

The full calendar of events will be on the new Temple website, www.tisharon.org, for easy reference.  

“The entire Temple community is excited for the kickoff of the Sifriyah zone,” stated Lisa Kritz, Traditions Coordinator, Temple Israel and Hertz Nursery School Director.  “We are thrilled to have a location for the entire community to come together to enjoy time with their children.  This new space will allow Temple Israel’s members and non-members to socialize with their children and friends while embracing their Judaism,” continued Kritz.

Please join us in the relaxing, casual space anytime but particularly when staffed for our special programs. Get in the “Zone”!
