Live Entertainment with Angie Haze
Eccentric singer-songwriter Angie Haze will perform at the Jan. 26 Winter Bash all the while wearing bells around her ankle, playing a handmade tambourine shoe, drums, a guitar, cowbell, melodica and a kazoo. She’s more than just a one-woman band; she’s a humanitarian who’s driving force is to help the world find solace, value, unity and a safe haven through the power of art. Her music inspires hope and change, and her songs are compelling and authentic with vocal arrangements that will move you to sing and give you goosebumps.

We support the growth and development of each child (ages 6 weeks to pre-K) by providing a hands-on exploration-based curriculum in a warm and nurturing environment. Our classrooms incorporate experiences designed to enhance children's understanding of the world around them and their relationship to it as they are expressed through Jewish values and traditions.
