— PJG ECC Receives Proclamation From City of Parkland Honoring Special Milestone During Florida’s Jewish History Month —
PARKLAND, FL (January 9, 2023) — Kicking off January’s Florida Jewish History Month with a special proclamation from the City of Parkland, Congregation Kol Tikvah (CKT), a community-focused, traditional Reform congregation of more than 300 Jewish families, will celebrate the 20th anniversary of its Phylis J. Green Early Childhood Center. With classes catering to children ages 12 months through five years, the PJG ECC offers weekday academic programs, childcare services, and a Voluntary Pre-kindergarten Education Program (VPK), all of which exceed state requirements.
“When Congregation Kol Tikvah had a vision for a preschool 20 years ago, no one imagined we would grow from only two classes for two year-olds into such an incredibly strong pillar in the Parkland community, catering to more than 150 children,” said Sydney Berlin, PJG ECC’s Director, who also serves on the Board of Jewish Early Childhood Professionals and is a member of the Early Childhood Educators of Reform Judaism. “In addition to offering a strong academic curriculum amid a warm atmosphere celebrating Jewish traditions, most of our teachers have been with us for at least a decade, and some as many as 20 years — it speaks volumes to our commitment to the children and our heritage.”
To honor the Phylis J. Green Early Childhood Center’s 20th anniversary, Congregation Kol Tikvah is hosting its annual signature event — LOVE & LEGACY — on Saturday, February 4, at 7 p.m, at 6750 N. University Drive, Parkland, FL. The festive evening will be filled with dinner and dessert, catered by The Cook & The Cork, winner of the prestigious Wine Spectator Award of Excellence and The “DIRONA” (Distinguished Restaurants of North America) Award. There also will be a DJ, dancing, cocktails, casino fun, and an auction. Additionally, Congregation Kol Tikvah will honor the 2022-23 Stephen B. Zafir President’s Award winner, David Hirsch, who is being celebrated for his dedication and service throughout the years at Congregation Kol Tikvah.
