Please join Temple Emanu-El and the JCC of Central NJ for a Special Needs-Friendly Celebration: A Purim Parade! The Purim Parade will take place on Sunday, March 11, 2012 from 2:30 pm - 4 pm at The JCC of Central NJ, 1391 Martine Avenue, Scotch Plains, NJ. The cost is $18/family. All families with children with special needs, including siblings, are welcome to attend. Participants are encouraged to dress up as their favorite character, as this is a Purim tradition. Children will bake and eat delicious Hamantashen, learn about the story of Purim from a local Rabbi, and create a grogger in celebration of the holiday.

Ma’ayan, Temple Emanu-El’s Religious School program for children with special needs, ensures that a Jewish education is accessible to every child. Our goal is to provide all children the opportunity to be called to the Torah as a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Ma’ayan also offers a variety of family education programs for children with special needs. These events are run in conjunction with the JCC of Central NJ and are held six times per year.
This program is made possible in part by a grant from the Jewish Federation of Central New Jersey and by the Holly E. Wetscher Ma’ayan Education Fund. To learn more about this event and the Ma’ayan program, contact Program Director Amy Ash at (908) 232-6770, ext. 137, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
