Temple Sholom dedicated its new playground at the Selma Maisel Nursery School in May with a ribbon cutting ceremony.

Children, teachers, parents, clergy and lay leaders were all on hand in the new play area for a blessing administered by Senior Rabbi Mitchell M. Hurvitz, and songs with Cantor Asa Fradkin.

The new, custom-designed and built playground includes upper and lower play areas connected by slides built into the ground, a climbing wall and a piece of equipment designed especially for two and three-year-olds. There is also a riding area with a working toll booth, aptly called the Selma Maisel Freeway, in honor of Selma Maisel for whom the Nursery School is named, and Rabbi Mitch’s deli, which pays homage to Rabbi Hurvitz.

Children have been enjoying use of the playground since construction was completed this past fall.

Rabbi Hurvitz commented, “We feel privileged to be able to give our children this gift as it enhances the time they spend at Temple Sholom.”
