Hope everyone has had a wonderful winter break! We have had a great school year so far, and we are already halfway through the year. Early in December we had a visit from our ISJL Education Fellow, Missy Goldstein. Missy spent the weekend of December 5-7 with our congregation and religious school. She participated in Friday night services and we enjoyed a Shabbat dinner and Drum Circle together at CSI. She attended Shabbat morning services, and on Sunday morning, engaged all of our Sunday School students in activities with a Chanukah theme. Thank you to Jennifer and James Bernstein for hosting Missy for the weekend.

Rockin’ Shabbat happened on December 12th and continues to be well attended. Thanks to Rabbi Aaron and Miss Sharona for music, songs, and a Chanukah story, as well as our service. Also, thanks to Anne Bayme and Shelley Davidson for hosting the Shabbat dinner.

Our CSI Chanukah Family Lunch happened on December 14th. We celebrated Rabbi Aaron’s birthday and enjoyed latkes and hotdogs. Thanks to Margo Kenirey and Cathy Silverman for organizing a project for our students to create, and then have as a Chanukah gift for their families. The students used stencils to draw shapes of Jewish objects, and then filled the shapes with a collage of stamps that were mostly from Israel. This gathering was our last day before winter break.

We look forward to the New Year, 2015! Please note that there will be NO Sunday School on January 4th. Sunday School will resume on January 11th. Wednesday Hebrew School will resume January 7th. We also look forward to celebrating with Maya Rubinstein on the occasion of her Bat Mitzvah the weekend of January 16-18!

Happy 2015 to all!
