Due to the holidays, we’re running a little late on our blog. Please forgive us!!! There is lots of information below!!!
(Did you get a personalized clay Seder plate before the holiday? Hope you and your families enjoyed our art projects and our wonderful Seder leaders/singers!)
On Thursday of this week, we will remember the 6 million Jews and others who died in the Holocaust and the kindness of many who helped save others. Just FYI if you hear a little about this from your child.
Tiyul to shul is this Shabbat 4/14….. it’s just a lovely way to all walk a little together to come to services on Saturday morning. Check it out!!
Back to regular business:

ספירת העומר Sefirat HaOmer Counting of the Omer From the 2nd night of Pesach we count each day until we reach the holiday of Shavuot. We are anticipating receiving the 10 Commandments!!! We include this in our daily prayers. Ask your child what day of the Omer is it today??
תפילות Tefilot Prayers At this point of the year, we are checking to see if our students can chant and read the prayers we have learned this year. We are also learning more about these prayers with Rabbi Rosenblum.
Don’t forget that the Community Wide Celebration for Israel’s birthday will be on Sunday, April 15 from 12-3 at the JCA. And we are singing at 12:15… please arrive at noon in school uniform and sing along. Come celebrate and have fun !!!

פרשת השבוע Parshat HaShavua Portion of this Week is שמיני Shemini all about Kashrut.
תזריע Tazria and מצורע Metzorah We have 2 portions for the following week. (We double up a few times in order to finish the Torah on time) We are learning about leprosy and gross contagious stuff and what our ancestors did about all kinds of medical issues……. it’s really fascinating for the kids.
