Jewish Programming at K’tonton ELC

Yom Ha’atzmaut (Israel Independence Day) at K’tonton ELC

Morah Karyn taught us all about the map of the state of Israel – learning about the desert in the south, the trees in the north and the bodies of water that surround!

We had a spirited parade of our own, displaying the Israeli flag with its two blue stripes and Star of David.

Passover at K’tonton ELC

We had a model seder and everyone joined in on the fun! From asking the four questions to “crossing” the Red Sea, the story of Passover was brought to life!

Purim Hamantaschen Baking Event at K’tonton ELC

Flour, rolling pins and fruity jams – oh my! The children at K’tonton Early Learning Center had a fun time during the Purim Hamantaschen Baking Event. The Congregation Beth El – Ner Tamid Sisterhood prepped for this event by making enough dough for everyone in the school to participate.

When the kids and teachers were ready, they had enough dough to make 250 scrumptious kosher hamentaschen. Everyone got their hands dirty and joined in on the fun. Each child rolled dough with rolling pins and lay the flat dough on parchment paper to fill with chocolate chips, strawberry jam and even mini marshmallows! Once the edges were pinched and formed they wrote their names on the parchment paper to mark their treats and transferred the sheets onto the baking pans. There was a special Hamentashen Baking Station (with adult supervision) and all of the hamentaschen made their way into the oven. Certainly a sweet memory for all!
