Weekly Update 10/26/15

Our classrooms were rocking yesterday, with a virtually full house of engaged and inspiring Jewish learning!!

Next Sunday is a very special day for us: most of the 10th graders will be traveling to Philadelphia under the guidance of Rabbi Miles, Allisa Stieha, and Justin Smith where they’ll visit one of the oldest synagogues in the country, Mikveh Israel, explore the National Museum of American Jewish History, and round out the day with a visit to Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell! The rest of our students will be privileged to see the CenterStage Acting Out production of And Then They Came For Me, Remembering the World of Anne Frank. It’s an extraordinarily moving piece of theatre and I’m sure the students will be touched by it.

The play starts at 11:15—so please drop off your children this Sunday at 11 am at the JCC. Pick up will still be at 1:30 across the street at JFCS. Because we need to buy tickets for the play, it’s especially important that you let me know if your child will be absent (10th graders going to Philly—I know who you are!).
