27th Week: SJS 4/12 & 4/15

Message from Mr. Sherman
Yesterday our students enthusiastically returned to continue their Jewish Studies.  Our Zayin students are putting the finishing touches on their Mitzvah Project Trifolds which they will be presenting to the Clergy, their parents, the Vav parents and our Gan through Vav students.  This program has evolved into an opportunity for our students who are becoming Bar or Bat Mitzvah to share with the SJS students who are younger than them their passions to help repair the world.  We are also thrilled to invite Shalva to SJS this Sunday continuing a tradition of our Vav students and their parents discussing the ramifications of bullying and the importance of not standing by idly and watching it happen, through a Jewish lens.  Special thanks to our congregant Naomi Senser for facilitating this discussion.  We hope that many from our Gan, Aleph and Bet classes will join our Shalom Club Director Jamie Cooper on a bowling field trip immediately following SJS this Sunday.  Please contact Miss Cooper to RSVP or if you have any questions: jcooper@amyisrael.org or 847-962-1478.  Finally, our Pardes and Confirmation students will prepare to help lead the congregation in a Yom HaShoah Commemoration program, taking place on Sunday, April 19th.  We look forward to seeing all of our students this Sunday morning.  In the meantime, Chag Pesach Kasher v’Sameach and an early Shabbat Shalom!
