K’tanim "Little Ones" Young Families Class

Sundays on site 3:00pm-3:45pm

K’tanim (Little Ones), is a musical gathering for families with young children ages 0 to 4 years old. We meet on Sundays during Religious School for a joyful musical circle while learning the songs and prayers of the holidays through the cycle of the year.

K'tanim class is as much for the parents/caregivers as it is for the children!

Come and connect with other families with little ones and receive the essence of the Jewish holidays together through music, play, stories and crafts.

Led by: Ari Shafstein

Hi everyone! For those of you who have not yet met me, my name is Ari and I graduated with my master's in music education at CU Boulder! I teach music at a school in Aurora, CO.

I joined the Nevei Kodesh team as the religious school music teacher a few years ago when I arrived to begin my degree program. Before making my way to Boulder, I studied music and philosophy at the University of Florida, where I led music for services at the Hillel House and worked as the music teacher at a local Hebrew school. After graduating, I moved back down to South Florida where I worked as an SAT tutor, but it was a job destined to be short lived. A few months after returning home, I got a job offer to be the musician in residence at Temple Israel in Cape Town, South Africa. I spent three wonderful months in Cape Town working as a songleader, music teacher, youth worker, and b'nei mitzvah tutor before returning to the United States, but my wanderlust wasn't satiated just yet. Luckily for me, a synagogue in Melbourne, Australia was looking for a music teacher and assistant to the cantor, and next thing I knew I was heading down undah'. I spent a full year working in Melbourne (or Melbin, as the locals say) before returning to the United States once more to continue my education here in Boulder. It's been a wild ride, and one that I'm glad has landed me here with this wonderful community.
