Jewish experiences are an important component of all programs at the Suzy Fischer Early Childhood Academy. Rituals, holiday celebrations, Shabbat, Hebrew language, and Jewish culture are an essential part of our curriculum and weaved into our daily activities, so students experience the richness and beauty of Jewish life each day.
Through CAJE, with generous funding from the Greater Miami Jewish Federation, the Jewish Resource Specialist (JRS) Initiative brought together five congregations and JCC’s and established a teacher-leader position, whose focus is to strengthen the engagement of families with young children and deepen the Jewish learning within our Early Childhood Education Academy. We are thrilled to be working alongside Marissa Halle and Myriam Azubel, our liaisons in this endeavor. Through intentional work and programming, we are transforming our Jewish Early Childhood program into a center of engagement and significant learning that will impact our children, parents, and the community at large.
