Past Program Highlights

  • Langley Hebrew School - Spring 2018

    We were thrilled to have 17 children enrolled in this new six-week program designed to foster a love of Jewish culture and religion, Hebrew language acquisition, celebration of Israel, and an appreciation of Jewish art and music. The idea for the Langley Hebrew School came from local parents, who applied for and received a Connect Me In Community Engagement Grant from Jewish Federation to fund this program. A grant also supported a similar program in Squamish.

  • Sticky Shabbat at the Honeybee Centre - September 2017

    In partnership with PJ Library and the Jewish Community Centre of Greater Vancouver, Connect Me In co-hosted this sweet Rosh Hashanah-themed event in Surrey. It was a great way for families to meet each other and enjoy a brief Shabbat celebration, and everyone took home delicious Shabbat and Rosh Hashanah treats.

  • Challah Bake in White Rock - May 2017

    This bake-and-share event gave 20 community members the opportunity to mix, knead and braid one challah to take home and one challah to share with another family. It was great way to meet new people and catch up with old friends.
