What are we celebrating?

The preschool, founded in 2005, turned 13 this school year!

Is this really a b’nai mitzvah party?

It is, with a twist! This is an adults-only event. Enjoy a fun-filled evening including a Jewish deli menu, drinks (wine, beer, and a signature cocktail), dancing, and a raffle. Prizes include (but are not limited to) baskets filled with babysitting services and restaurant gift certificates, electronics, premium sporting event tickets, artwork, and free preschool tuition for three months. All proceeds raised by the raffle and ticket sales will benefit the preschool's capital improvements campaign. Festive attire recommended!

What is the preschool’s capital improvements campaign?

The preschool's capital improvements campaign is raising funds for crucial repairs and improvements to the synagogue's education wing which serves not only the preschool students but the religious school and several Shabbat programs. Those enhancements include separate, child-friendly bathroom facilities in the education wing, additional roof repairs, HVAC updates, security upgrades, and overall improvements to facility decor. Additionally, funds may be used to enhance common areas used by both the preschool and the congregation and to expand the growing preschool program. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for these improvements.

What does an event ticket include?

A ticket includes a kosher meat buffet dinner, drinks, and activities. There isn’t reserved seating, but there will be designated seating areas and dining tables throughout the venue for everyone to use.
