April 2019 Family of the Month
The Wall Family of San Ramon
Lara and Jeremy live in San Ramon with Gabby (age 8), Jilly (age 2), and Levi (8 months). They recently joined Beth Chaim Congregation, where Gabby attends power hour Hebrew school on Wednesdays and Sunday School.
The Wall family loves having so many options of things to do in the East Bay — lots of synagogues, youth groups, mom groups, and children’s activities. Gabby has been so excited to learn about Judaism. Facebook is especially helpful in finding out about events and coordinating, especially when life throws you curveballs. This happens all the time for the Wall family whose week-to-week life always looks different. Beth Chaim has been particularly welcoming and flexible as Gabby attends her Jewish activities every other weekend, since Lara shares custody of Gabby with Gabby’s dad who isn’t Jewish.
They treasure their PJ Library books which Gabby has been receiving since she was an infant. They have fun trying recipes they learn about in the Sprout Newsletter and love listening to PJ Library CDs, some of which are long-time favorites now.
