Chadash Update – Welcome Julie Zorn

Julie Zorn has taken over the position of Chadash Director and reports that she is excited to join such a committed and enthusiastic pluralistic community.  Julie grew up in Akron and returned northeast Ohio this past winter from Tucson, AZ with her husband, Scott, and two children, Haley (age 12) and Dylan (age 10) where she served as the Jewish Living and Learning Specialist for the Tucson JCC.  She recently completed her Masters Degree in Jewish Education from Hebrew College with a specialization in experiential education, and she looks forward to bringing much of the experiential approach to the Chadash curriculum in the upcoming school year.  We are very fortunate to have someone as accomplished as Julie leading our children as they move forward in their Jewish education.

Julie is especially looking forward to getting to know the families in Canton and plans to bring enriching programs for the whole family to celebrate their Jewish identities together.  Some of the upcoming family programs include a Chadash tashlich in the park, a Hanukkah latke party, the annual Chadash Shabbat and a Passover story walk.  Chadash parents should come hear about the plans Julie has for the 2017/2018 school year at a parent information meeting planned at 10:00 am on September 10 during the first day of religious school.

The community would like to thank Nancy Shimer for her five years of service to our children and our community.
