Welcome to Gan Shelanu
Gan Shelanu is Adath Jeshurun Congregation’s early childhood program for children aged six weeks through Pre-Kindergarten. Adath Jeshurun Congregation’s award-winning infant-preschool program provides a rich variety of learning experiences intended to stimulate the cognitive and social development of your child within a Jewish context.
The Gan, as it is affectionately called, provides a rich variety of learning experiences to stimulate the cognitive and social development of your child within a Jewish context. We work to instill in our students pride in their heritage, the importance of community and love of giving back. Gan Shelanu is committed to the study of mitzvot (good deeds) and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) through classroom activities and interactions. Children learn what it means to do as well as give. Every Shabbat, we have services where we recite the blessings and sing in Hebrew with Hazzan Dulkin!
All of our staff at Gan Shelanu are vaccinated. The health, safety and well-being of our students and families is central to us, which is why we require all teachers and staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19. View Gan Shelanu's complete COVID-19 safety protocol.
Classes are held each weekday during the 9-month school year, from September to May. Depending on the age of your child, you may choose from the following programs: Infant Care, Transitional Toddler Class, Toddler Class, Preschool Class or Pre-Kindergarten Class.
When you enroll your child in any of Gan Shelanu’s programs, you become part of our community. By sharing holiday celebrations and watching your child learn Jewish customs and traditions, you and your child will make lifelong friends and become part of the larger Adath community.
