What an extraordinary last couple months we have had here at Kol Rinah ECC. We got to meet our Shinshin from Israel, Evyatar.

What a wonderful September and October we have had here at KRECC. In September, classes spent a lot of time learning about bees and honey, apples, round challah, and sounds of the shofar in preparation for Rosh Hashanah.

When the weather isn’t conducive for playing outside, teachers have gone out and collected fallen snow and brought it inside for the children to play with.
