Congregation Beth Israel is offering a summer reading program for children in kindergarten through grade 6. “Sefer Summer” provides parents with a reading list of recommended Jewish-themed books to help guide them in selecting books for their children that support Jewish learning, enhance reading skills, and offer wide appeal to young readers. Children who read at least three Jewish-themed books will receive a prize in September. Alternatively, books may be read to children participating in the program.
Recommended K-6 books will be on display in Beth Israel’s Ellen Jeanne Goldfarb Community Learning Center throughout the summer, along with summer reading suggestions for adults and teens. The Learning Center is open to the public.
For more information about how to get started and to obtain summer Learning Center hours, contact Karen Beyard, Librarian, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Sefer Summer is a free program sponsored by Congregation Beth Israel’s Youth Engagement Program (Religious School) and the Friends of the Library. Synagogue membership is not required.
