The Jewish Discovery Hour (Released Time Program) provides an hour of free Jewish education to Jewish children in public schools across the U.S. This program is now being offered in Pittsburgh for Colfax Elementary School students, grades K-5. First week of Jewish Discovery hour for the new school year 2016/2017 is September 8, 2016!
The program will take place every Thursday at 2:00pm. Children will be picked up from school by a representative of Chabad of Pittsburgh and will walk together to the nearby PZ synagogue for an engaging Judaics class taught by Mrs. Chani Altein.
At 3:00pm, parents will pick up their children at the side entrance of the synagogue, on Phillips Avenue on the corner of Shady Avenue. If your child usually takes the bus after school, please contact us for pick-up options.
