Community-wide Hanukkah party for Greenwich kids & families

JCC Greenwich and PJ Library invites Greenwich families to celebrate Hanukkah with a special performance by environmental arts troupe, Bash the Trash Sunday, Dec. 13, from 3-5 p.m., at Carmel Academy, Lower School Gym, 270 Lake Avenue, Greenwich.

Families can anticipate a dollop of educational enrichment along with their DIY fun and latkes. After learning how to build instruments from reusable materials, kids will be invited to play their creations at the centerpiece performance and then strut with them at the parade finale. Along the way they will come to embrace Bash the Trash’s message of ‘Science, Sound and Sustainability.’

“Bash the Trash’s motto is ‘think globally, act locally’ to spread environmental awareness and change. And, with responsible stewardship of our earth as a theme in many of the PJ Library titles, this is an ideal way to ring in this year’s Hanukkah,” said PJ Library Greenwich Director Tracy Daniels. The event will also include a book drive to collect gently used PJ Library books to share with Jewish children around the world.

Bash the Trash (BTT) builds, performs and educates with musical instruments made from reused and repurposed materials. Based in the New York City region, BTT combines science, music and environmental awareness through our performances, programs and social initiatives, always focusing on how art and science work together. JCC Greenwich is an independent non-profit organization that provides exemplary programming for children and adults in our community. PJ Library is an international Jewish family engagement program sponsored locally by UJA Greenwich, in partnership with the Harold Grinspoon Foundation, which mails a gift of high-quality Jewish children’s literature and music for ages 6 months to 8 years monthly to Greenwich families.
