Beth El Preschool
Beth El is a child-centered preschool that encourages preschool that encourages each child to develop a sense of wonder, joyful individuality and personal achievement. Our low teacher-student ratios allow close friendships, sharing and caring, and joyful group participation. Our experienced teachers know how to foster a loving, peaceful learning environment and a lot of fun! Located at Beth El Synagogue for over 40 years, we encourage an appreciation for Judaism while offering a warm sense of community to families of all faiths. We offer half-day programs for children 18 mo. through pre-K. Financial aid available. You can find our more on our website.
Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education of NC, Inc.
The Holocaust Speakers Bureau (a component of the Center for Holocaust, Genocide and Human Rights Education of NC, Inc.) seeks children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors and concentration camp liberators (known as 2Gs and 3Gs). The Holocaust Speakers Bureau visits schools, houses of worship and organizations throughout the year to share the experiences of the Holocaust through eyewitness testimony. Since it is becoming increasingly more difficult for survivors and liberators to participate, we are seeking to expand our speaking network to include 2Gs and 3Gs. Please contact Sharon Halperin via email or at 919-933-9089 if you are interested or would like more information.
The Lerner School has programs for children of all ages throughout the year available to the Jewish community. Programs include Shmooze n’Play, Shabbat Together, and Jewish Story Time.
Lerner Jewish Community Day School is looking for substitute teachers and dedicated volunteers! Those applying for substitute teaching should have some experience as an educator as part of their resume. Those interested in dedicated volunteering, should have a big heart, adore children, and at least one hour of dedicated time they can lend once a week or every other week! Background checks will be necessary for both roles. If interested, call 919-286-5517.
