Happy New Year from Westwood Children’s Program!

Happy New Year! Our theme for January is our fourth Source: Jewish and Christian teachings of God’s call to love our neighbour. In the children’s program, we will be exploring some of the messages from the Jewish tradition on January 5 and 26, and messages from the Christian tradition on January 12 and 19. We will do so through story telling, games, crafts, and conversations about what kindness looks like in our lives and in the world.

Many Blessings for the year ahead!

Ilara Stefaniuk-Gaudet, Director of Religious Education

We will be starting upstairs with our adult friends for a Rainbow Story for All Ages exploring our monthly theme created by Storyteller Extraordinaire, Rev. Anne Barker!
