Our religious school is in the final stretch of the 2014-15 school year. Before this year is even over, plans will begin for organizing our 2015-16 school year! We are already scheduled to attend the ISJL Education Conference coming up in June. Missy Goldstein, Our ISJL Education Fellow visited us the weekend of April 17-19. Friday night she participated in Rockin’ Shabbat, in our adult Shabbat services, and planned activities for our Sunday School students.
Rockin’ Shabbat had wonderful attendance! Our theme was Yom HaAtzmaut and Yom HaZikaron and celebrating Israel. Thank you to Ethan and Trish Hutten and Lilah for sponsoring a delicious Israeli dinner; to Jennifer and James Bernstein for the Israeli flag craft activity; to Jennifer and Missy for sharing stories about Israel; Rabbi Aaron for music to parade our flags by, and to Deborah Adler for leading our prayers and blessings.
On Sunday morning Missy and Sharona continued to celebrate Israel with our older students with dance and art, creating posters about Israel. Jennifer Bernstein and Lara Geller’s classes, Sohie Denisar, Daniel Cohen Spencer Hebert and Rebecca Kenirey, baked challah with Lena Oslander. Junior Congregation also happened on the 19th. Thank you to everyone who makes our Sunday School rock!
Our USY and Kadima youth groups met on April 26 and thank you to Pam Hill and Nicole who led activities. Also, a huge thanks to Laura Ilan who has organized and overseen the USY and Kadima groups, and their schedules and activities.
Although not religious school students at this time, we wish our CSI High School Seniors, Marc Rosengart, Zohar Rubinstein, and Alex Koplin, mazel tov on their upcoming graduation.
We are all getting ready for the countdown!
