October scroll article 2015

Religious school is in full swing following our busy month of High Holidays and celebrations. But we’re not done yet! Join us on Sunday, October 4th as we welcome our youngest students for Consecration. Mazal Tov to Garrison Langel, Miles Livingston and Brady Wilgoren – may your studies of Torah always be sweet! We will celebrate Simchat Torah also, as we parade with Torah around the sanctuary.
Welcome to our new students, Matthew and Jordana Grossman, who recently joined our synagogue with their parents Diana and Marc. We also welcome back to TBS the Langel family, Michael, Sandy, Naomi, Rebecca and Garrison. We are glad you are here.
On Sunday, October 18, in conjunction with the reading of Parashat Noach, we invite you to bring your pet to receive a special blessing. Students should arrive to school at the usual 9:30 start time. Parents should bring their leashed or caged pet and meet behind the Bayit (house) at 9:45 when teachers will bring the students to meet you. If you cannot bring your pet, please bring a photo of your pet. If you do not have a pet, it is okay to bring a photo of a friend’s pet or of a pet you wish you had.
Come hungry for pancakes on Sunday, October 25. Pancake breakfast tickets are $5 and may be purchased in the Temple office or at Religious School. Please do your part to sell tickets in advance to make this a successful fund raiser for our school. Friends are welcome!
All of our students will participate in a School Shabbat Service and Oneg on Friday, October 30. Please plan to attend to support our students who will lead services, present a skit, display art work and enjoy Shabbat together.
Please note that there is no Sunday School on October 11 for the Columbus Day weekend. For an interesting take on this observance, please see the link below from a 2012 article supporting the fact that Christopher Columbus was actually Jewish.

Have a great October,
