Pajamuary!
Jan 1 – Jan 31 all-day

All month long, we will be collecting new pajamas (sizes 12-18 months, 2T, 3T & 4T) to donate to Martha’s Table so that their clients can be warm and cozy this winter, too.

Drop off new pajamas at Lindsay Kagin’s house – please email her at lindsayk@edcjcc.org for her address. For easier shopping, see a wishlist here of pajamas that will ship directly to Lindsay. All pajamas will be donated to Martha’s Table for distribution to families in need.

Close out “Pajamuary” with a Pajama Weekend celebration January 29-31! Feel free to join us for any or all of these programs, which are recommended for ages 1-6:
Friday, January 29: Pajamuary Tot Shabbat
Saturday, January 30: Pajamuary Havdalah
Sunday, January 31: Pajamuary Breakfast & Performance

This program is brought to you by the Edlavitch DCJCC and funded by The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and The United Jewish Endowment Fund.

Handmade for the Homeless – January 2021
Jan 17 @ 10:30 am – 11:30 am

Join fellow knitters and crocheters over Zoom to make handmade goodies for a great cause! Our goal is to contribute as many warm winter items as possible to distribute to individuals experiencing homelessness in the DC area.

All levels of knitters and crocheters are welcome.  Don’t know how to knit or crochet? We’ll teach you!

Please email Chana at chanaengel@gmail.com to register and receive the link to this event.

What should I have with me at home?

Please have your own needles/crochet hooks. If you are not already working on a warm winter item and are looking for a great project or just starting out, please have:

  • #8 or #10 knitting needles (circular or straight) or a size H crochet hook
  • Patterns you’re working on or want to start

What do you supply?

We provide lots of beautiful yarn, several patterns including hat patterns using #17 needles or a size N crochet hook, and experienced knitters and crocheters to teach anyone who would like to learn how to knit or crochet.

If you can’t join us over Zoom, join us in spirit by knitting or crocheting:

  • Hats
  • Scarves
  • Gloves and Mittens
  • Socks or slippers
  • Other items to keep people warm during the cold winter months

Please hold onto finished items at this time. If you do not have the space to store finished items, please contact Sonya at sonyaw@edcjcc.org to make arrangements for a pick-up. Thank you!

DC Preschool Parent Conversation
Jan 17 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

Overwhelmed with what you saw at virtual school tours or maybe just at the thought of a school search during COVID? You’re not alone. Let’s come together and talk about the preschool process.

Children who turn three before October 1st, 2021 are eligible to apply for the DCPS public pre-kindergarten program for the 2021-22 school year. This competitive lottery can be stressful and confusing, even before the challenges of COVID. We will discuss practical strategies for selecting which schools to apply for through the public lottery, learn about what happens after results are revealed, and discuss questions from other parents. This program will be facilitated by the JFamily Ambassador, Ross Diamond, whose son is a virtual Pre-K 4 student at DCPS Garrison Elementary.

Register in advance for this meeting: https://edcjcc-org.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAqdO6vqjgrGtdVCjdImi3zf65SFZ-l2QqG

This is a parent guided conversation, no school administration will be present.
