DAVID A. SEGAL Z"L FAMILY SIMCHA PLAY CENTER
David A. Segal z”l Family Simcha Play Center Now Open!!
Years in the making, we are so very excited to announce the opening of the David A. Segal Family Simcha Play Center to the whole community.
Our member Rachel Segal and close family friend Barry Borodkin approached us with a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to celebrate our growing young family and school communities, and to put our shul on the map in a brand new way.
Rachel and Barry, working alongside Rabbi Shira Wallach, envisioned a gathering place for Shearith families and children.
The Eitz Chayim was our inspiration in designing our Play Center, bestowing the extraordinary gifts of learning, play, and community upon our children and their families. And just as it’s our responsibility to tend and cultivate our Tree of Life, our Play Center engages kids not just in physical play, but also offers opportunities for social connection, rooted in Torah Study. Israeli artist Eli Kaplan-Wildmann infused the beauty of Hebrew and Jewish ideas into the stunning mural, turf design and panels that are part of the play elements.
We extend deep gratitude to Rachel and Barry, as well as to Staci Reznik, Sarah Davis, and our Director of Education, Sarah Lipinsky, for serving as Rabbi Wallach's creative partners. We also thank the Shearith Board of Directors and the Foundation Board for their invaluable insight.
