While breastfeeding is a natural process, it is mostly a learned art. The more you know the fewer challenges you might face. After attending a class you will be aware of the obstacles that can occur in the first days and weeks and know how to handle them. Instructor Donna Brown, R.N., IBCLC discusses the advantages of breastfeeding, how breast milk is produced and how to get off to a good start. We recommend taking this class in the last trimester of pregnancy.

Hebrew School is an incredible opportunity to inspire future adults with a sense of Jewish pride and awareness.
At JITF's Gan Israel Hebrew School our goal is simple: We want our students to view Judaism in an intelligent, relevant and upbeat light and to be very familiar with the written and spoken Hebrew language. We hope to engage their senses of identity by capturing their imaginations and attention. So, we put a lot of effort into providing our students with substantive lessons and a positive atmosphere.
Our goal is to offer all Jewish children an education and memories that will inspire them for a lifetime. We provide an education that instills Jewish pride, a sense of history, and a genuine and meaningful understanding of Judaism. Through this knowledge, these children grow into informed, thinking Jewish adults who will shape our communities and world for years to come. $525 for the year
