Storahtelling is proud to announce a new project serving unaffiliated young families of the Russian Speaking Jewish Community of New York.

The project, in partnership with the JCCA, the 14th St. Y, the Kings Bay Y, the Marks JCH and the JCC Manhattan, with funding from the Center without Walls of COJECO (Council of Jewish Emigre Community Organizations) will include a series of performances and educational programs for young families in community centers in Brooklyn and Manhattan, starting in November 2010.

StorahSteps is Storahtelling’s new early childhood education initiative, created in partnership with the JCCA and the Early Childhood Department of the 14th Street Y in lower Manhattan. The project presents an innovative model for engaging young Jewish families with the core narratives, rituals and values of the Jewish heritage in accessible and meaningful ways. This exciting new program is aimed at 3-6 year olds, their caregivers and families. StorahSteps uses Storahtelling’s successful Maven Method™ of integrating Jewish learning with the performing arts and adapts it to age-appropriate educational frameworks of early childhood programming.
