Message from Mr. Sherman
This weekend we have SMFP and our annual Yom HaShoah commemoration. Between the Main Sanctuary and our library Family Tefillah we have a total of 22 students reading/chanting from the Torah scrolls. What a statement that is when you look at the faces of our students in the collage above and know that they are the future of our Jewish community. We can never take for granted the fact that our students have the religious freedoms to be able to practice the rituals and customs of the Jewish people. We hope and pray that our future is bright and part of keeping it that we is never forgetting our past. We encourage the adults within of our Am Yisrael SJS community to join the congregational Yom HaShoah program in the Sanctuary at 10:30 a.m. this Sunday, April 19th. Dr. Lefkovitz, our resident expert on Holocaust education will lead a meaningful program, which will include our Vav, Zayin, Prozdor, Pardes and Confirmation students. As you engage with your children about their Jewish Studies, please be sure to check out the Class Home pages this week. We look forward to seeing you this weekend for these very important programs. Shabbat Shalom!
