Shabbat Services Childcare

We are very
pleased to announce that Childcare during Shabbat Services and High Holidays
began on September 10, 2016 for children aged 2 to 6 years. You can be sure
that they will be well taken-care of and entertained by our new Childcare
facilitator, Leah Greschner

Leah grew up in
Victoria. She attended Lakehead University in Ontario where she studied
psychology. She travelled to South Korea and taught English for a year. She has
18 years of experience with children. Always passionate about working with
children and youth, she most recently managed a youth centre in the Kootenays.
Leah has worked as a community support worker, a behaviour therapist, a
residential supervisor and an outdoor educator. She is excited to be a part of
the community at Congregation Emanu-El again. She looks forward to meeting your
little ones.

Our childcare
services are free of charge. They will be held upstairs in Shalom Daycare’s
place between 10 am and noon during Shabbat Services.
