TOT HOLIDAYS AT NSCI

These resources are here to help families with young children prepare for & celebrate the Jewish holidays. Some of these resources were created especially for the NSCI community, while others have been selected because they are relevant, educational, and/or fun for tot's. More resources & upcoming programming can also be found on our Instagram page: @NSCItots . As the year goes on, we will add and update the resources, so your TOT can learn & grow as the holidays change. 

 

We would love to see how your tot is celebrating the Jewish holidays. Send pictures and videos of your tots using these resources to sarah@nsci.org or tag us @NSCItots. We are happy to print any of these resources for you. Please email sarah@nsci.org and we will print it and have it available for you to pick up from our building.

 

We hope that these resources create an amazing foundation for future Jewish living & learning. Chag Sameach, Happy Holidays!
