The Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL) held their Volunteer Reading Partner Appreciation Event, on May 16, at the JCC. Melissa Hickey, Ed.D., Director of Literacy/Reading for the state Dept. of Education, expressed her gratitude to JCL reading partners for sharing the love of reading, learning and conversation with their elementary New Haven Public school students. Storycrafters of Hudson, New York, entertained and enlightened with their unique musical duo-style of storytelling. JCL is an award winning-project of the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven.
