On Saturday February 9th Midrasha had Hebrew School Shabbat at Temple Israel. It was well attended by both parents and students. Rabbi Kaplan included the children in learning and discussions during the morning services. It was a meaningful morning for parents, teachers and students. The children and congregation were treated to a special Shabbat of “kid” friendly treats at the Kiddush, with the best peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and an ice cream sundae bar with lots of toppings.
By now you have all received your Shalach Manot information. This is a great fundraiser for Midrasha and an easy way to participate in the mitzvah of Purim. We hope we can count on all of you to be a part of a great community project.
Midrasha and Temple B’nai B’rith are having a Purim fun night. Everyone is invited. There is a buffet dinner, games and crafts and much more. Children and parents are encouraged to come in costume and participate in the costume contest. Please RSVP to Temple B’nai B’rith by March 8th if you are planning to attend.
Security continues to be of prime importance and we are exploring ways to improve on our response to any threat. We always want our children and teachers to be prepared and feel safe. We will be updating you on any new procedures that are put in place.
Please continue to ask your children about what they are studying. If you have questions contact Gerri Kaplan. Gerri is always there to answer your questions or concerns.
