As we come to the end of the year once again, please let me know how many Shabbat Services your child/children have attended between 9/1/15 & 5/7/16.  I need to hear from you no later than Monday, May 16th.  If your child has been to 10 services or more, they are on Rabbis Rolls and we recognize them on the last day of school.

We also hope that many of you will join us for our community Yom Ha’Atzmaut Israel Celebration on Sunday from 1:30 to 4 at the JCC.  At this annual event, the community will come together to learn more about different aspects of Israeli culture and celebrate as a community.  3rd and 5th Grade students, who have been studying Israel this year, are especially encouraged to attend.  If you and/or your child are interested in helping sit at the CBE table for a shift, please be in touch with Rabbi Koppel.  Here's the link to the flyer -- Ha'atzmaut final flyer.pdf

Also, volunteers are needed on Sunday from 9:30 to 10:45 to help out with cooking with several of the grades.  Please let us know if you are free for part or all of that time to come and help us with this activity.

Shalom Families,

Hope you are enjoying the spring, even if the weather doesn’t quite feel that way.  It’s hard to believe that we’re already towards the end of the year!

I wanted to remind everyone about Yom Yisrael (Israel Day) this Sunday, May 8! School will be in session for all students from 9 to 10:30. This is a special day of Religious School to celebrate Israel as a school community, as we approach Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day.  This day is designed for our children and their families to join together in order to learn about different aspects of Israeli culture, and engage in a variety of activities.

Activity stations will include Israeli Chocolate Balls (all will be nut free and there will be a gluten free section), Gaga, Israeli Dance, Israeli music, children’s games, and more! At each activity, students will earn Israeli Sheqels, which they will be able to exchange for items at the Shuk (market).

Families are encouraged to join their children for this special event.  Children under 9 should be accompanied by an adult, or they will be assigned an official teen buddy.  All are encouraged to wear blue and white as we celebrate Israel!!

Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!


Rabbi Elisa Koppel

PS Looking ahead, May 15 is a regular day of Sunday School and May 22 is our last day of school, which will be from 9 to 10:30.  May 11 and 18 are our last 2 Wednesdays.
