Playground Dedication

The Shalom Chaverim playground was built at Westchester Reform Temple in time for the 2021-2022 school year. This playground supports a central theme of creative play within the Early Childhood Center curriculum.

The inclusive outdoor play environment continues to inspire young children with natural materials, tactile experiences and physical challenges that enhance a child’s ability to complete more complex learning tasks. Sensory play supports language development, cognitive growth, fine and gross motor skills, problem solving skills, and social interaction.

This dynamic playground also includes several elements designed for children with different physical abilities, and creates a place that provides engagement and fun for all of our children.

There are still ways to support this exciting playground and help engage the minds of our youngest learners.

We invite you to consider dedicating a piece of playground equipment or inscribing a brick.

Inscribing a Brick

By donating a brick (or two!) to the Early Childhood Center’s outdoor courtyard, you are not only ensuring that the children have a wonderful outdoor space to play, but you are also leaving your physical mark for years to come.

The brick sizes and costs are as follows: 4×8: $500 and 8×8: $1,000

If you have any questions or need additional information please reach out to our Philanthropy Director, Laura Rosen Apostolou at, 914-723-7727 ext.8128.

Sponsor an Oneg

Honor your child and/or your child’s teachers by sponsoring a Shabbat or Holiday oneg at Westchester Reform Temple.

As a sponsor, your name and dedication are read from the bima, and you help us celebrate Shabbat with the warmth and community that are characteristic of our congregation.
