Open houses scheduled for May 11, 15

The Beacon Hebrew Alliance in September 2016 plans to open a progressive, garden-based Jewish preschool for children ages 2 to 4. The school will be led by Ilana Friedman, founder of Beacon Craft Workshop. Rabbi Brent Spodek, Cantor Ellen Gersh and Rabbi Shoshana Hantman, the BHA director of education, will support a team of teachers, as will BHA members Jennifer Rutner and Yoni and Vivian Stadlin, founding directors of the Jewish farm-to-table sleepaway camp, Eden Village Camp.

The preschool will hold open houses from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, May 11, and from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 15.
