Kindergartens Across Europe
This is why kindergartens are among our favorite projects. Some of our kindergartens are part of larger educational institutions, for example in Warsaw or Moscow. Others are stand alone projects, the only Jewish education providers in their communities, such as in Bratislava or Perm.
Whether big or small, new or old, the kindergartens of the Foundation are a joy to visit. Seven decades after the Holocaust and three since the fall of Communism, children across Central and Eastern Europe sing Shabbat songs not only in Hebrew, but in Czech, German, Hungarian, Polish, Romanian, Russian, Slovakian and Ukrainian. This is Jewish continuity in action. Our programs include:
Ronald Lauder Kindergarten of the Irg Leipzig, Germany
Lauder Orach Chaim Kindergarten, Kiev, Ukraine
