Erev Shabbat Achrei Mot/Kedoshim
Shabbat is just a few hours away, so this update will be brief. This was a week to remember as we not only are getting into the groove of distance learning, but our co-curricular programming reached a new high with an exceptional series of programs for Israel.
But we’re not done – as you will see below. Our Taharat HaMishpacha Seminar for Seniors has begun, a fantastic Grandparents Night is Tuesday (8 pm), our Israel Advocacy Club is meeting after school (3:15p) on Wednesday, Rabbi Stromer is planning a special evening program for the boys this coming Thursday night (more details to follow)!
Today during our regular class visits, we watched as Mrs. Marmel’s students gave a breakfast-time cooking demo in Hebrew. And later we were “blown away” by students from Mrs. Katz’s Tanach class as they presented an online video they prepared about Shema. Kol Hakavod to our most creative teachers and students!
The schedule for Monday is:
Period 2: 9:30 – 10:10 a.m.
Period 3: 10:15 – 10:55 a.m.
Period 4: 11:00 – 11:40 a.m.
Period 10: 1:00 -1:40 p.m.
Period 11: 1:45 – 2:25 p.m
Period 12: 2:30 – 3:10 p.m
Finally, before Shabbat you should be receiving an email with next year’s class schedules. Students and parents, please review these schedules carefully. If you have any questions, the email explains how to make changes and who you can speak with.
Stay Safe, Stay Inspired, and Have a wonderful Shabbat!
Rabbi Leonard A. Matanky, Ph.D.
