PJ Library celebrates Thanksgivukah

[by Jennifer Tuvlin, PJ Library Director]

PJ Library celebrated “Thanksgivukah” with a sing along, crafts and of course donuts.  Preschool aged children came together at the JCC on a very rainy Sunday morning for a song fest led by Carol Heideman and Marsha Roth. The children danced and sang traditional Chanukah songs and participated in an original story-song written by Carol and Marsha all about the special occurrence of Chanukah and Thanksgiving on the same day this year.

The beauty of this event was not just how excited the children were to sing about one of their favorite holidays, but to see how many children from all parts of Louisville’s Jewish community came together.

PJ Library is next having a family concert on January 26 at 10:30 a.m. to celebrate providing books for five years to Louisville’s Jewish children. Save the date because Rick Recht, a nationally known Jewish singer, is coming to Louisville for this special event. Recht is the national music spokesman for the PJ Library and executive director of Songleader Boot Camp. His concerts are easily accessible for young children and he tailors the experience for the predominant age of his audience. The concert is free to children and just $5 for adults.

More information will appear in the December 20 edition of Community.  If you are interested in helping plan this event, please contact Jennifer Tuvlin at jtuvlin@jewishlouisville.org.
