Weekly Update 9-19-16

We had another terrific day at HSJS yesterday, filled with discussions of everything from immigration to the US to the growing BDS/anti-Israel/Exclude Jewish students phenomenon on college campuses.

Next week is the Hunger Walk to benefit Dare to Care Food Bank; we have traditionally participated as a school as part of The Temple’s team of walkers.  After my call for some rough numbers last week, I’ve only received 1 “yes, my child is participating in the Hunger Walk” and my informal poll during lunch yesterday didn’t yield any positive responses.  So, unless I receive a flood of positive RSVPs today, I’ll unfortunately have to cancel our participation in the Walk.  WE WILL STILL HAVE SCHOOL NEXT SUNDAY:  FIRST PERIOD CLASSES ONLY.  I’ll let everyone know by the end of the week if pick up will be at JFCS or at The Temple after the Walk.
