The Pridelands are coming to BCHA in this year’s musical, The Lion King Jr. Almost 50 students, both onstage and behind-the-scenes, have come together to bring to life a shortened version (70-80 minutes) of Disney's heartwarming hit. Audiences of all ages will be dazzled by our Broadway-quality costumes, and will fall in love once again with the stand-out songs by Elton John and Tim Rice.

Performances are December 12 at 7pm and December 15 at 11am and 3pm.

Tickets are just $10. or at the door.

Annual Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy (“BCHA”) Celebration Dinner

The annual Bi-Cultural Hebrew Academy (“BCHA”) Celebration Dinner will take place on Sunday, January 12th, 2020 at 5:30 PM at the Hilton Stamford Hotel. The theme of the dinner is "Imagine. Design. Create." BCHA's pedagogy is multi-faceted. This year's dinner highlights one of these facets — learning through creativity and artistry. We celebrate the bonds that we establish in our lives and our community through the creativity and artistic sensibilities that activate our learning. Imbued with the spirit of G-d, Bezalel, the great artisan of the Bible, materialized the design of the Mishkan. Through his creativity and skill the Mishkan became a singular unit, an exemplar for the Jewish nation. This is what we celebrate at our 2020 Celebration dinner.

Kosher Home Delivered Meals

The Pamela and Michael Hirsch Kosher Home Delivered Meal program at Schoke JFS provides meals delivered weekly to those in our communities who might have difficulty shopping and preparing their own food.

Once a week, volunteers deliver five kosher microwave ready catered meals provided by Jewish Senior Services. They also spend a little time visiting with the recipients.

Each meal includes a main course, vegetable, starch, soup, fruit, bread and dessert.

This is a subscription service with frequency flexibility. The cost is $7.50/meal or $37.50/week. Reduced rates are available for families who qualify.

For more information about the program or to volunteer to assist, please contact
