November 2018 Family of the Month
The Gould Family of Oakland
Michelle and Josh live in Oakland with their son Reuben (3) and Zeb (1).
They belong to Temple Sinai and send their kids to the Temple Sinai David Pregerson Preschool there. They also received one of Federation’s Sprout grants before, which provides funding to families to incentivize first-time participation in a Jewish education program. “We weren’t seeking a Jewish preschool for our son, but are now very excited to have him begin his Jewish learning,” Michelle said.
They love receiving PJ Library books! The kids love their books that come in the mail and not only has it been teaching them about shabbat, it inspires them to celebrate other holidays. For example, one of the sukkot books inspired them to build a sukkah together in the yard!
