News

Guest Speaker Series:
This year we have introduced a guest speaker series. Students will be exploring Jewish Pluralism within our own community. Speakers will include Rabbi Brown (Conservative Judaism), Rabbi Marley Weiner (Reconstructionist Judaism), and Rebbetzin Slonim (Chabad Chasidism). We hope to add more speakers as the year progresses. Our aim is to introduce the wide range of Judaism to show the students they have the choice to be part of the community that fits them best. More than anything, we want to instill in them a pride for their Jewish heritage and love for what Judaism brings to our lives.

Sukkot:
Every year we have a Sukkah hopping event during which the students and parents are able to experience a variety of Sukkot in the area, while celebrating the holiday together.


4/14/19 Chocolate Mock Seder: Students and parents enjoyed a Chocolate Seder, which played on the traditional Seder by replacing the foods usually used with chocolate.
