Holiday Gift Ideas

With Thanksgiving in the rear view mirror, now is the time to turn your attention to the December holidays. Gifting could not be easier than purchasing an eGift card on our secure website in whatever sum you choose. Create a special message and we take care of the delivery. The lucky recipient may apply the Scarsdale Adult School credit towards enrollment in any of our outstanding classes, including our upcoming 85th Anniversary Afternoon of Learning! An eGift card is also a great present for friends and family across the globe or out of town for the winter because it can be used to take any of our online courses too.

Get into the spirit of the season with Robin Ingram's Basket Weaving class (Course 12038) on Tuesday, December 5, 2023, to make a holiday gift basket all in one sitting. Follow that with Katie Goldberg's Holiday Card Crafting on Wednesday, December 6, 2023 (Course 12010), or Wednesday, December 13, 2023 (Course 12014).

Stay tuned for the unveiling of our winter catalog of classes running between January and March and remember to register for our Sunday, December 3, 2023, celebration.

Please join us on December 3, 2023, from 1:00 to 4:00 pm at Temple Israel New Rochelle. Our 85th Anniversary Afternoon of Learning promises an amazing keynote, superb breakout sessions led by our fantastic instructors, and a feel-good celebration with a champagne reception and hall of fame induction. We hope to see you there!
