Eleventh Week: SJS Sun. 11/16 & Wed. 11/19

Message from Mr. Sherman
A magical weekend took place at the Perlman Retreat Center at our Family Retreat.  In my weekly collage are just a few glimpses of the pictures that were taken following Shabbat at the retreat.  Thanks so much to the adults, teens and tweens who planned and helped the Rabbi and I in so many ways.  It was truly a community effort.  In addition, thanks to the nearly 100% participation at Parent Teacher Conferences this week for the Bet through Zayin Classes.  This Shabbat, the Rabbi, Cantor, Nancy and I will be presenting at the annual B’nai Mitzvah Worshop for 6th Graders and their families, as the students will help lead services from the bimah.  We also have two separate field trips for 7th through 10th Graders listed below.  Finally, please pay very close attention to the request for toiletries, as our SJS community will be donating them as Chanukah gifts just 9 days from today.  As always, please take a moment to check out what is going on in your child(ren)’s classes, by checking out the quick links above.  Shabbat Shalom!
