Merriam Webster includes in its definition of the verb reflect: “to bend back: to turn into or away from a course.” It’s my fervent hope that reflect characterizes the depth and breadth of the Judaic and Hebrew skills, thoughts and impressions our first-rate team of teaching professionals have passed along to our students over the past eight months.
Our Religious School students continue to learn about their rich Jewish heritage and culture. Our Kitah Aleph children, class of 5777, received their Sim Shalom siddur with enthusiasm and eagerness. Their first tefillah they learned was Ein Keloheinu, one of the last prayers sung at a Shabbat morning service. This tefillah emphasizes that our future rests upon our children and disciples. We all pray for a future marked by Torah and peace, in which our children will follow the example of Aaron, loving and pursuing peace.
Fifth graders from both sides of the ocean will be in touch with each other on Sunday, April 21st and celebrate Israel at 65 with a very original Yom Ha’Atzmaut Seder! They will be able to share similarities and differences regarding their Jewish identity and hopefully form friendships and create beautiful memories. They created a tree of blessings that was sent to the Narkism School in Tivon, Israel and we are awaiting one from them as well.
Our Kitah Bet students will be helping lead the Kabbalat Shabbat / Ma’ariv services on Friday, April 26th. The children have mastered the beautiful prayers welcoming in the Sabbath, please mark your calendars and plan on attending. Spend a few moments with your child and listen to him / her read. The time that you will be spending together will be invaluable

This academic year has been an enjoyable and rewarding journey, filled with adventure and experiences that will help navigate our students’ religious and spiritual development for the rest of their lives. Every step that we have taken has been a blessing and I look forward to watching your children grow into fine young adults.
