On June 12, the sun came out just in time for approximately 150 children and families to enjoy a beautiful day at PJ Library® Calgary's Popsicles in the Park celebration. Attendees enjoyed all of the Popsicle’s favourites including a petting zoo, two bouncy castles, face-painting, bubbles, and delicious kosher popsicles. Click here to see more photos. Thank you to the many volunteers and attendees who made this day possible. To get involved with more PJ programs, contact Sydney Truax.
From June 10 to 12, 18 students from Hillel Calgary and Hillel of Edmonton joined together for a fun-filled weekend at Camp BB Riback for the annual Jews, Schmooze, and Canoes event. In between canoeing and bonfires, the students participated in meaningful programming that engaged them in conversations about Israel activism and antisemitism on campus. For more information about Hillel and other young adult programs, contact Hannah Giesinger.
