Jewish Traditions

& Holidays

Adath Jeshurun Preschool has been dedicated to children and childcare since 1953 and is one of only a few preschools in North America to receive the prestigious United Synagogue Solomon Schechter Award for excellence in early childhood education. We provide Jewish programming, exposing all of our students to Judaism to help build relationships with our greater community. Even though the majority of the children who attend are not Jewish, they have the opportunity to learn about our culture, history and celebrations.

AJ Preschool families are always welcome to join in community events, services, and celebrations with

Congregation Adath Jeshurun - no matter who they are.
