January scroll article 2016

Happy 2016 and welcome back to school! I wish you all the best that this New Year may bring and hope that all of your resolutions for 2016 lead to success and fulfillment.

We wish a big Mazal Tov to Abby Stenn and her family this month as Abby will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah on January 16 at 9:30am. All are welcome to worship with the family on this special occasion.
On Sunday, January 24 we will observe Tu B’Shevat during Religious School with a meaningful and fun program celebrating the variety of tree species in Israel and noting the importance of taking care of our environment. We will nurture our pollinator garden and share a special Tu B’Shevat sweet treat! Volunteers are needed and welcome to participate. Please contact me if you would like to help.
Looking forward, please make sure to be present on Friday, February 5 as we enjoy a Family Shabbat featuring all of our religious school students.
Bring your ruach and koach!
