Dear Parents,
 
This summer is unprecedented and unpredictable, and so we are adapting and retooling our Summer Program to meet the needs of our youth community. We are stopping the Chugim program and moving to a new structure, seen below.

For any questions, please contact Director of Youth Engagement Barak Stockler at barakstockler@nykolami.org
