Your child is creative? Here is a new place to know about…

If you have lived on the Upper West Side or visited museums around town, you probably know Linda White and her wonderful reputation for engaging children in creative and open-ended play.  Linda will now be hosting her play studios on 89th street  between Broadway & West End at B’nai Jeshurun.  I highly recommend spending time with her and the other thoughtful families who carve out time to be in her company – with found materials and globally sourced treasures.  My kids have grown up learning with Linda.  Please spread the word.  It’s really a gift that BJ is offering to our neighborhood to have Linda White here.  She has worked in many of the most prestigious museums and communities around the world!

Creative Play Studio

Tuesdays beginning on September 16 | 10:15AM and 11:15AM | 89th Street Community House
Join Linda White, Imagination Play Project founder and play curator, for a creative and artistic play space with your child. This open play space will encourage children to explore and experiment with natural materials, build on their creativity and expand their imaginations, all within a Jewish framework. Families can sign up for the fall semester, or can pay per session. This program is a collaboration of BJ Young Families and the Imagination Play Project. For ages 0-3. Register here.

 

After School Play Studio

Tuesdays beginning on September 16 | 3:30-5:30PM | 89th Street Community House
Come play and explore in our new after school program! Linda White, Imagination Play Project founder and play curator, creates an inviting space for kids to build with natural materials, expand on their creativity and open their imaginations, all within a Jewish framework. Families can sign up for the fall semester or can pay per session. This program is a collaboration of BJ Young Families and the Imagination Play Project. For ages Pre-K to third grade. Register here.

 

BJ has other amazing programs for young families.  Check them out (and if your organization has programs to share, please let me know!):

Bim Bam is a pre-Shabbat class for children ages 3 and under to sing Hebrew and Shabbat-related songs, hear stories, and give tzedakah. We end every class with Shabbat blessings including lighting the candles, kiddush and hamotzi.

The cost is $180/members and $230/non-members per family (new members attend for free, please contact Allison Kapusta). If you can’t attend all classes, sign up for a 5 Class Pass at a specific time: 10:15AM or 11:15AM. It’s good for any fall date, and the cost is $100/members and $140/nonmembers. Register by September 3, and know that space is limited.

In addition to Hebrew language education, we also explore aspects of Jewish and Israeli identity as well as learn about Jewish values and holidays through an Israeli prism. We are united by our shared goals to develop fluency in the Hebrew language, to instill love for Israeli culture and to build a vibrant and diverse community. For grades K-3. Register here.

We also have last-minute sitters who are available on-call. We are here for you so please email us at allison or fill out our Fall 2014 form to start the referral process.

You have been crowned The Biggest Nightlights fans

From: Joanie Leeds <joanieleeds>
Date: Mon, Aug 11, 2014 at 8:59 PM
Subject: You have been crowned The Biggest Nightlights fans

Dear special select friends and family,

When I think of our BIGGEST FANS and supporters, the ones that send me videos of their kids rocking out to our tunes, wearing our shirts, sending me nice emails and tagging on FB or big KPL fans…there is a handful of you who come to mind… So I’m asking you 20 fine folks for a bit of help which will take 2 seconds of your time.

I just found out that Sirius/XM Channel 78 Kids Place Live debuted 3 of our songs yesterday! I have been waiting with baited breath wondering if they ever would play any tunes from ‘Good Egg’ and finally, they did! I believe they are in the middle of a "trial" period where they test out certain songs and then if they go over well, they will play them a lot more. They don’t play my stuff often so this is a big deal for me!
Getting played on this station is a huge goal for a few reasons:
1) National exposure of course…and 2) This is one of the only stations in the country where you actually get paid fairly for radio play.

Request ‘Good Egg’ tunes to Sirius/XM Kids Place Live!!!

Having your songs in constant rotation and becoming #1 is achieved only by having fans constantly call in, emailing or putting messages on KPL’s Facebook page & requesting your favorite tunes. They just started spinning the following tunes: Kids Place, The World is Your Oyster or My Dadso please request request request! Remember, this is a kids station so if you don’t have kids, it needs to be dedicated to a kid listener or else it’s just weird, especially if you are my family. Pick a kid, any kid! :) It’s the best when it actually IS the child’s favorite tune.

Over the next week, please request as often as you’d like, the more often, the better, in one of these 3 ways:

1-- Call in 1-866-328-2345 & ask to hear Joanie’s Kids Place, The World is Your Oyster or My Dad (or your child’s favorite Joanie tune not mentioned). You might get on the air! Depending on the time of day, you could reach hosts, Mindy Thomas, Jack Forman or Kenny Curtis. They are hilarious and awesome.

2– Email kidsplacelive and dedicate one of these songs to a kid of your choosing. Just say how much you love Joanie Leeds & The Nightlights and how you hope to hear ________________. Make sure to say hi to the hosts, Mindy Thomas, Jack Forman and Kenny Curtis.

3-- Send a Kids Place Live a Facebook message to request your favorite!

Super easy… super THANKS!
If you know any super duper Nightight fans I left off this list, please feel free to spread the word to your friends.

Best,
Joanie Leeds

If you are a Mom – or a Dad please read this.

If you are a Mom or Dad, you probably came to my blog to find a nanny or to read something hyper-local going on on the Upper West Side. If you are a Mom or Dad, you love your child and would always want to protect them (you feed them, hug them, teach them how to properly cross our busy streets.)

If you are a Mom or Dad, please read this – from an Israeli Mom – and imagine how you would feel.  On the Upper West Side, we have a diversity of opinions, certainly.  I want to make it clear that I stand with Israel and hope that each person who reads my blog will take the responsibility to be educated on the facts and engage in respectful and meaningful conversations with those who have not yet thought about what it is to be an Israeli Mom. This was so touching to me. Thank you, Jack for sending this to me.

To be an Israeli mom.

To be an Israeli mom is – before you’re even an actual mother, to wait for the ultrasound exam to learn that everything is ok, but when the doctor says “it’s a boy” – to immediately imagine your fetus a soldier in uniform, with road dust in his hair, his rifle hanging on his shoulder and his eyes full of innocence. And to start being afraid.

To be an Israeli mom is to teach your daughter not to show weakness in front of her third grade classmates, because she has to be strong, so she doesn’t fall apart in front of her tough commander at basic training as a rookie soldier.

To be an Israeli mom is to complain about your country quite a bit, but always tell your children it’s the best place in the world.

To be an Israeli mom is to be involved, to “consume” the news like a drug addict, to protest for or against, and always feel responsible for what’s going on here, because it’s yours. It’s your state, and it’s your children that will protect it. And to know that you don’t have the option to be indifferent, not in this country. And sometimes – to agonize that you didn’t protest more.

To be an Israeli mom is to know about the situation no less than the staff sergeant, the commanding officer, and even the Chief of Staff. And if you meet them, to also let them know what YOU think should be done.

To be an Israeli mom is to be scared when there is a sudden siren, but to remember it’s important that your children don’t stress out, and won’t be afraid, so you take a deep breath and tend to them first, like you couldn’t be more calm and you’re not scared one bit.

To be an Israeli mom who lives by the border, near Lebanon in the north or Gaza in the south, is to be a part of a chain of the wonderful brave Israeli women, for whom guarding their homes is also guarding their country. And to hope this time would be the last.

To be an Israeli mom is to see field-training-uniform hanging on the laundry rope, and know how difficult it is to iron them. And to also know that the mother or father who irons them might shed a small tear which will probably be absorbed into the cloth, without leaving a trace, but which will have come from deep within the heart.

To be an Israeli mom it to not be able to look at the photos of our killed soldiers, and try not to think how they look like your own son. And then look at the photos and think it anyway.

To be an Israeli mom is to see a bereaved mother and feel how you run out of air, fee the sharp pain in your chest. It’s to know that that bereaved mother is not someone else – she is a mom exactly like you. And that it could have been you. And through that to feel you are soul sisters, and hurt with her. To want to hold and hug her, but at the same time to know you will never be able to actually ease her pain, and that there are no words.

To be an Israeli mom is to want one day to be a grandmother too. To be an Israeli grandma is to not to believe that both your grandson and granddaughter are being drafted to the army. After all, you were the one who told grandfather, when he went to war, that by the time you had grandchildren this would end. And to wonder whether it will ever end.

To be an Israeli mom is to know that all you want to give your children is security, and to realize that this is the one thing you cannot actually promise them. And still know for a fact that Israel is the most secure place for your child. (I know this cannot really be explained to anyone who is not an Israeli).

To be an Israeli mom is to want peace, but not be willing to give up safety or security. It’s to go through the current month in Israel and to know that an Israeli mom deserves to grow her children quietly. It’s to also know that one day peace will come.

Because peace is the promise of the Israeli mother.
And she is not the one to give-up.
