HIGH HOLIDAYS FOR KIDS: Free Children's Programming

We are proud to offer engaging and educational experiences for children in the Stanton community, and we have a full calendar of High Holiday kids programming, complete with tefilah, parasha learning, holiday activities, singing, movement, and healthy kiddush and snacks.


Our teaching staff this year includes Katie Lemmerling, an experienced Early Childhood teacher who previously taught at Luria Academy of Brooklyn and the JCC of Manhattan, and Danielle Bendavid, who has previously led our children's programming. Our programs are recommended for children 2 to 6 years of age, but children of all ages are welcome.


Thank you to the StantonKIDS committee -- Program Coordinator Laura Weisblatt, Lindsey Bodner, Aliza Deutsch and Elissa Sampson -- which has worked hard to ensure the success of this program.

Volunteering at Stanton

One of the many strengths of our shul is the variety and multiple talents and abilities of our congregants. It takes a lot to run our shul and our programming, and we can probably use your help. Are you a tech guru, web design aficionado, or social media wiz? A master event planner, fundraiser, or program coordinator? An accountant, lawyer, or investment professional? A trained carpenter, electrician, or contractor? If you have any of these or other skills, professional or amateur, that you'd like to contribute to Stanton, speak to Rabbi Bodner, Rivky Friedman, or another member of the board and let's think about how we can help make Stanton flourish together.

Planned Giving at Stanton

Looking for a way to give back to Stanton, not right now, but maybe at some point in the future? Consider planning a long-term gift to the shul. We encourage anyone interested in discussing various ways to plan a gift now that will be given in the future to contact Board members Michael Gordon or Rivky Friedman, or Rabbi Bodner. There are many ways to go about planned giving and we are happy to discuss the various options that might work for you.
