Beth Israel Synagogue Launches “Colors of My Jewish Year”

Beth Israel Synagogue | 22 N Orchard St, Wallingford | (203) 269-5983 |

Twenty-seven children from Wallingford, Meriden and North Haven were in attendance for the opening sessions in the new “Colors of My Jewish Year Program” — an innovative program made possible through a generous grant from the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven in partnership with PJ Library and the Wallingford, North Haven and Meriden libraries.

The goal of the 6-session monthly program is to provide interactive, educational programs and life-affirming Jewish experiences for affiliated, unaffiliated and interfaith Jewish youngsters (ages 3-8) in the Greater Wallingford area.

 Each session is held in two different locations – Wallingford Library and either the Meriden or North Haven library.

The sessions, led by Beth Israel Educational Director Marcy Thomaswick, span the months of the Jewish year and cover different holidays.

The Sept. 13 and 14 topic was Rosh Hashanah and the one for Sept 27 and 28 was Sukkot.

Future sessions will cover Chanukah (Nov. 30 and Dec. 6), Tu B’shvat (Jan. 17 and 18, 2024), Passover (April 17 and 18, 2024), Shabbat (May 2, 2024), and Shavuot (June 5, 2024).

Attendance is free.
