PJ Library to help introduce temple’s new Sunday preschool program

Temple B’nai Israel in Clearwater will launch a new program for families with young children that aims not only to be fun for the kids, but hopes to create community bonding and foster a love for Jewish education for these families.

The program, called Kef l’Yeladim (Fun Kids), is geared to children from infancy to kindergarten.

It will kick off on Sunday, Sept. 13 from 10 a.m. to noon at the temple. For this first meeting, the temple has partnered with the Jewish Federation of Pinellas & Pasco Counties and the PJ Library for a special Rosh Hashanah program.

At the kickoff, a representative from the federation’s Lions of Judah will read the PJ Library book of the month. There will be a snack and introduction to the program. This event is open to the community and is free.

The program is for preschool children from birth to kindergarten, said Dani Gamson, the temple’s director of education and youth, adding that the focus will be on Jewish holidays and Jewish values.

Sharon Tanner, who ran the preschool at the temple for many years, has developed a curriculum for the program. The focus will be on Jewish holidays and values.

Kef l’Yeladim will generally meet once a month through June. Those interested in participating should RSVP to Carl at the temple at (727) 531-5829 or email
