Foster Parent Information Meeting

HHS-CYF ​​Foster parents are people who choose to become the substitute families for children in need. Foster parenting is both a responsibility and an opportunity. It is one of the highest forms of community service. Foster children require more than "custodial" care. Foster parents provide food, clothing, and shelter, plus the love, stability, guidance, and discipline these children need until they are reunited with their families or are adopted. Foster parents give children their best efforts even though the child is with them only temporarily. Last year almost two hundred children in Montgomery County were temporarily separated from their parents. These children come from a cross section of the community--from a variety of social and economic backgrounds, from every race, religion and nationality. Their ages range from infancy to young adulthood. They may come from homes where there has been family breakdown. All have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused or have been neglected.

Purim

Days of Commemoration Purim is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of Persian Jews from the plot of Haman to exterminate them, as recorded in the biblical Book of Esther. Purim is marked by a carnival atmosphere, with masquerades, farcical plays, and the giving of gifts, especially charitable gifts. In the synagogue, the chief observance is the reading of the Megillah (scroll) of Esther, but here, also, unusual levity prevails. For example, at every mention of Haman, the congregation rattles "gregers" (noisemakers) to drown out the sound of his name. Purim begins at sundown on March 4, 2015. Category: Holidays. Thursday, March 5, 2015. Montgomery County, MD.

Norouz

Days of Commemoration "New Day" (originally "New Light") is the traditional celebration of the ancient Achaemenid Iranian New Year. Norouz is also widely referred to as the Persian New Year. Norouz is celebrated and observed by Iranian peoples and has spread in many other parts of the world, including parts of Central Asia, South Asia, Northwestern China, the Crimea and some groups in the Balkans. It is marked by family visits and the exchange of gifts, as well as special feasts. It is also commemorated by setting tables with foods and special items beginning with the letter S; this is known as the Haft Sin. The 13th day of the New Year festival is called “Sizdah Bedar” and is spent out of doors at picnics and parks. The UN's General Assembly in 2010 recognized the International Day of Norouz, describing it a spring festival of Persian origin which has been celebrated for over 3,000 years. Category: Holidays. Saturday, March 21, 2015. Montgomery County, MD.

Nowruz

Days of Commemoration This marks the first day of spring. Nowruz – ‘new day’ has been celebrated since Achaemenian times (circa 550 BC – 330BC) as the Persian New Year. The festival is celebrated in many parts of the Persian speaking world, including Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, the Caucuses, and Central and South Asia. For Zoroastrians, a religious service followed by a feast, is usual. Noteworthy in the celebrations is the ceremonious placement of a ‘Haft Sheen’ table (consisting of seven items of Ahura Mazda’s creations, starting with the letter S), also representing seven divinities in Zoroastrianism. Category: Holidays. Saturday, March 21, 2015. Montgomery County, MD.

Passover

Days of Commemoration Passover is an eight-day Jewish holiday which is celebrated in the spring. It begins on the 15th day of Nisan (on the Hebrew calendar), which falls between March 15-April 30. Passover commemorates the Exodus and freedom of the Israelites from ancient Egypt. Jews celebrate Passover in their homes at a ceremonial feast called the Seder. At the Seder, the story of the flight of the Israelites is read from a book called the Haggadah. Foods symbolizing the flight from Egypt are placed on the table. The most important symbol is unleavened (unraised) bread called matzo (also spelled matzah). According to the Bible, when the Israelites fled, they did not have time to let their bread rise. They made flat, unleavened bread instead. Therefore, Jews eat matzahs instead of leavened bread during Passover. Passover begins at sunset on April 3, 2015. Category: Holidays. Saturday, April 4, 2015 – Friday, April 10, 2015. Montgomery County, MD.

Foster Parent Information Meeting

HHS-CYF ​​Foster parents are people who choose to become the substitute families for children in need. Foster parenting is both a responsibility and an opportunity. It is one of the highest forms of community service. Foster children require more than "custodial" care. Foster parents provide food, clothing, and shelter, plus the love, stability, guidance, and discipline these children need until they are reunited with their families or are adopted. Foster parents give children their best efforts even though the child is with them only temporarily. Last year almost two hundred children in Montgomery County were temporarily separated from their parents. These children come from a cross section of the community--from a variety of social and economic backgrounds, from every race, religion and nationality. Their ages range from infancy to young adulthood. They may come from homes where there has been family breakdown. All have been physically, emotionally or sexually abused or have been neglected. There is now an ur… Category: Community Events. Educational Class. Age: Adult. Contact Name: Shelly Chaitow. Contact Phone: 240-777-1664. Contact Email: Michelle.Chaitow@montgomerycountymd.gov.
