Contra Costa Jewish Day School Kindergarten Open House

CCJDS is still accepting applications for 2015! Come visit our Kindergarten class! Meet our families! Meet the teachers! The Open House will take place immediately following a special PJ Library event: *****Celebrating Israel in Shadow and Song!***** Discover the worlds of shadow puppetry and music with Daniel Barash of THE SHADOW PUPPET WORKSHOP. In this hands-on program celebrating Yom Ha'atzmaut, Israel's Independence Day, Daniel will first introduce the art of shadow puppetry, and share some PJ Library books about Israel. Families will then be invited to make their very own shadow puppets inspired by the land of Israel. Finally, participants will parade their puppets behind the screen as Daniel accompanies them with Israeli songs on the ukulele! See you in the land of shadows! Sponsored by PJ Library, Jewish Federation of the East Bay, Gan Ilan, and the Contra Costa Jewish Day School. This event is free! Designed for children 2-8 - but older children and parents will enjoy it too! RSVP appreciated, contact Amy Wittenberg - Free, kindly RSVP to or call 925.284.8288.
