"From Generation to Generation" - M'dor L'Dor
Within the beautiful National Historic Landmark, Park East Synagogue, the Leon & Gina Fromer Park East Youth Enrichment Center offers an in-depth Jewish experience to youngsters who attend the finest private and public schools in New York City. We aim to instill in our students a love for their Jewish heritage and pride in their Jewish identity through a strong foundation in knowledge, tradition, and culture, taught by dedicated and caring teachers.
From Kindergarten through High School, (Ages 5 and up) students study Bible, Prayer, Jewish History, Laws and Customs, Hebrew, and Israel. Values such as tzedakah and social responsibility are emphasized within the context of the academic program.
The basic curriculum is enriched with art, music, and projects. Our students enjoy special events such as Shabbatonim, Chanukah workshop, Purim carnival and Model Seder.
Our students learn to live as Jews in the modern world.
The Bar and Bat Mitzvah experience deepens identification and commitment.
We promote Family Education through special workshops and integration into Synagogue services.
Another dimension of our Youth Enrichment Center is our renowned fun filled Children Service held every Shabbat and Holidays at 11:00 a.m. Our children are taught the basic prayers and songs for the Shabbat. The weekly Torah portion is reviewed with important Jewish values that are derived from it. A special Shabbat arts and crafts project pertaining to the Parsha is constructed. The service is concluded with a scrumptious Children's Luncheon.
