29th Week: SJS 4/26 & 4/29 + 5/3 Israel Solidarity Day Early Dismissal

Message from Mr. Sherman
This week we commemorated Yom HaShoah, Holocaust Remembrance Day and Yom HaZikaron, Memorial Day for our Israeli Soldiers.  Since Yom Ha’Atzmaut, Israel’s Independence Day didn’t begin until sundown on Wednesday, we will be celebrating this coming Sunday, April 26th.  We ask all students to wear blue and white clothing in honor of Israel’s Independence Day.  Speaking of Israel, the annual Israel Solidarity Day is coming up on Sunday, May 3rd.  We will be having regular SJS until 11:00 a.m. At that time, we ask for all students to be picked up and we highly encourage you to attend this year’s event at Ravinia.  For the schedule of events and all the details you will need to know, please click here.   We hope that several of our 3rd through 5th Graders will join Miss Jamie Cooper and Ruach for their field trip to Nickel City this Sunday., April 26th  Please see Miss Cooper’s email and respond to her as soon as possible.  Her email is jcooper@amyisrael.org and her cell phone is (847) 962-1478.  Our deep condolences go to our Cantor Simon and his wife Bonnie on the loss of her mother of blessed memory.  Mazal Tov to our Zayin student Ava Kelber, as she will be called to the Torah as a Bat Mitzvah this Shabbat.  Mazal Tov to Ava’s entire family, including her parents Jenny and Michael and siblings, Jacob and Lyla.

Shabbat Shalom!
