No one remembers every school lesson, even those from Hebrew School!
Experiences, on the other hand, are often retained in our memories more clearly with a “stickiness” that can even positively shape ones’ long-term point of view and values.
With this in mind the Merrick Jewish Centre PTA goal is to enrich our children’s classroom learning via experiences that engage the mind and senses with Jewish ritual such as vibrant Purim Carnivals, meals in the Sukkah, and dreidel tournaments on Hanukkah.
Through the PTA, parents and Jewish educators can come together with other parents and collectively impact our children for the positive.
Please come and join us. We organize activities throughout the year and appreciate your interest and energy.
