Olam Chesed is springing into the End of year 

04/13/2022 12:03:31 PM

Apr13

At Olam Chesed we're together and enjoying spring! We've had such a wonderful, rich, and beautiful year exploring the concept of shalom.  It's so much more than "peace" "hello" and "goodbye".

It's been just fantastic to be back at JCOGS making, doing, thinking, praying, and being Jewish together.  Here's a snapshot of some of the things we've been up to this spring: learning about Moses and Miriam; writing shalom poems and turning them into prayer flags; preparing for Pesach by cleaning out chametz and making Miriam's cups; exploring the four quarters of Jerusalem and why it is considered to be "the city of peace" and why we say l'shanah haba'ah b'yerushalayim/next year in Jerusalem. 
Be sure to join us on Friday, May 6th for Family & Friends Friday, our end of year celebration to see what we've created all year!

There are only two more sessions after today:

  • April 27th we honor Yom haShoah, Holocaust Rememberance Day, with a poignant short film and meaningful, age-appropriate tekes/ceremony
  • May 4th we celebrate Yom haAtzmaut, Israeli Independence Day, with a special program taught by Chef Nadav (yup, we'll be eating what we create!)

This one’s for the young (at ❤️)

PURIM 5782 - HOW GOOD TO BE TOGETHER AGAIN! 

03/28/2022 11:11:07 AM

Mar28

Two years ago, just an hour before the Olam Chesed Purim festival was set to begin, the W.H.O. declared a world-wide pandemic.  We partied with an abundance of joy ... and then shut the doors.  Fast forward to Purim 5782 and WE...ARE...BACK! The social hall was filled with games and giggles, glittery costumes and grease paint, and a giant roaming Coronavirus apologizing for the headache he'd caused us all wink We enjoyed treasured traditions such as the goofy spiel put on by a gaggle of giddy parents and yummy hamantaschen, but we also began an amazing NEW tradition: reading from the exquisite new Megillah gifted to us in memory of Michael Heitner, z"l.  Not one reader, but several, especially the stars of the day, our Olam Chesed kids who rose to the challenge posed by Rabbi David and chanted so beautifully! More than that, they were super proud :)
