Shir a Song w. Ms. Ellie

Cohen Chapel


Ellie Schuchman, the music specialist at the ECC, offers shir a song classes for babies, toddlers, preschoolers along with their parent or caregiver. We will sing and dance to oldie-but-goodie secular songs AND some fun Shabbat and Jewish holiday songs, using finger plays, instruments, props, and dance. Please note: If your child is currently enrolled in the ECC, s/he will receive music time as usual. These classes are IN ADDITION and are for ECC or non-ECC children to attend (with a parent or caregiver) and are offered through Ms. Ellie Music (not the ECC).

Classes will be held at Ohr Kodesh Congregation, beginning on Sept. 27, on Thursday and Friday mornings. Classes are 45 minutes long and a series will include 10 classes.

FALL SESSION: Sept. 27 & 28 thru Dec. 6 & 7 (with make-up classes on Dec. 13 & 14 if needed). (No classes on Nov. 22 & 23 - Thanksgiving.)
