(AJNews) – Over 150 parents, grandparents and children of the Talmud Torah Early Learning Centre (ELC) attended its Hanukkah event December 22, 2022. Educators took to their stations as the kids enjoyed getting their faces painted, decorating Hanukkah items, playing, and reading books.
Educators Michal and Livnat worked the entire day preparing a delicious kosher hot meal for hungry attendees. They enjoyed latkes (including gluten free options), two varieties of pastas, salad, challah and sufganyiot. Our new Director, Sacha, helped serve the food, while Jennie, our new Lead Educator, manned the tattoo station.
While some families had the chance to get to know one another, others enjoyed an opportunity to chat and catch up. It was a warm and inviting event celebrating the holiday of light and thanking families for choosing us to care for their most precious cargo.
Todah Rabah to Marit and Jay for organizing the silent auction and 50/50 raffle, which resulted in almost $2,700 for program enrichment in the TTELC. We appreciate all our fabulous donors as well as those who placed bids!
Thanks also to the rest of our Educators, Vishu, Alpha, Arleen, Birzena, Cristina, Julie, Shirley, Sofia, Jeaneth, Elena, and Yodit for their efforts in helping make the event a huge success!
We look forward to another get together in the summer!
