The following is a paid announcement from the MBBC/Nash Jew After School Program (330 Neptune Avenue, 3rd Floor):

after-school

MBBC/Nash Jew After School program, located at 330 Neptune Avenue, offers hands-on homework and tutoring help from certified NY teachers and assistants, as well as a slew of excellent programming to grow their world beyond the classroom. With specializations in dance, gymnastics, art, karate and more, we help children become well-rounded individuals.

Our facility also offers music and drama theater, alongside social activities like table tennis and chess. Hot, nutritious lunches are provided to every kid, including soups, fruits, vegetables and juices. We also provide transportation from schools and to homes, a big convenience for working parents.

But don’t take our word for it. Here’s what one parent had to say about their experience:

MBBC/Nash Jew After School is great in all aspects. My daughter has been attending MBBC’s afterschool program for three years. Besides completing all of her homework in the program, she enjoys personalized attention from teachers and counselors. Every person working in the program greets us with a smile and positive attitude. Every day, they provide kids with different activities: gymnastics, dancing, chess, arts, and after, she can stay for additional training in a program she enjoys most. For my daughter, it’s dancing and gymnastics. All instruction is available in both English and Russian, which allows my daughter to learn Russian language and use it more. Any time I had a problem picking my daughter up, transportation was available. If she felt sick, I was called immediately. I will definitely use MBBC for years to come and recommend it to everyone.

– Natalie Chernikova – mother of Nastya Berard, student

Our programs are designed for students in pre-kindergarten to middle school, and is certified by the New York State Department of Family and Children Services.

The co-founder of the Mazel Day School (2915 Brighton 6th Street) in Brighton Beach, Chani Okonov, received the Jewish Education Project Young Pioneers Award.

The award was given due to her connection with the day school and the work she’s done for a school that primarily serves the Russian-speaking Jewish community in Southern Brooklyn.

The Jewish Education Project praised Okonov on their site and wrote:

Under Chani’s leadership, the school has grown from just three children in 2002, to 14 classes and over 170 students today.  Known for its warm environment and child-centered approach, MDS also maintains high standards in professionalism, academic achievement and engaging learning experiences.

Much of the school’s aim, Lubavitch news writes, is to reconnect Russian Jews with their religious past and help them preserve their cultural connections while assimilating into the larger American culture.

Okonov told Lubavitch news, “Russian Jews could be fully assimilated in less than one generation, unless their Jewish identity is revived.”

The article continues:

Creating a Jewish day school experience that would re-engage this demographic has been Okonov’s vision ever since. Together with her husband, Chabad emissary Rabbi Avermel Okonov, the couple established the school under the auspices of the F.R.E.E. organization (a grassroots institution founded by emigres from the Soviet Union).

Last year, the school marked the anniversary of Superstorm Sandy by cleaning up the Holocaust Memorial Park.
