Down-to-Earth JCC Programs


Todah Raba: I’m Thankful For… an early childhood program on Sunday, Nov. 18 at 10 a.m-11:30 a.m. at the Rosenthal JCC (600 Bear Ridge Road in Pleasantville) that engages children in the business of being thoughtful to others through “filling buckets” with good thoughts and good deeds. A concurrent program for parents offers down-to-earth suggestions and tips on raising thankful kids based on the values in the book The Blessing of a Skinned Knee. Entertaining for kids, educational for parents, and just in time for Thanksgiving!
Global Connections at the Rosenthal JCC is an education and exchange program for 7th and 12th graders in Northern Westchester and their peers in our sister city of Shoham, Israel. Teens meet monthly and connect with each other through social media to build bonds that culminate in spring and summer exchanges. Families host the international students so that they gain a real understanding of what life is like for each other. This cultural learning experience is hands-on and truly personal.
