The class is well structured with
a variety of basic courses which

Lubavitch Preschool and Day

Chanie brings Judaism to the

and fun way.
At the preschool level, the

Hebrew letters, and eventually,
read Hebrew at the conclusion of
the second preschool year.
Basic Jewish knowledge is

tions is “Pinky the Pushke."
Pinky wears a talit koton (small
talit), but has a hole in his head.
Pinky marches around the room
and clinks when coins for charity
are dropped in his head.
Chanie makes her students aware
of the Jewish months of the year,
and has created a personalized
calendar for the children to use.
The calendar, which is constructed
on a peg board, allows the child to
identify specific dates of the
month which are important.
Jewish arts and crafts are vital
to the experience of young chil
dren. Chanie has constructed a
series of Jewish artifacts which
enable the children to relate to
Jewish observances in a meaning
Chanie uses the famed “Lam-
deini” program to teach her stu
