Message from Mr. Sherman
The SJS year moves into Week 33 on a real high note, following our Musical Drama Chug presentation. The collage above features some pictures of students who acted and sang their hearts out in this production! Speaking of singing, Nava Tehila will be with us this Sunday morning, May 24th from 10:00 a.m.-11:30 a.m. for a very family-friendly Shavuot experience. Nava Tehila, based in Jerusalem, have inspired many of our recent musical updates to our services from our youngest kid’s Tefillot (prayer services) to our clergy-led services in the Main Sanctuary.
Our bins in the SJS and synagogue lobbies were overflowing with jam, cereals, canned vegetables, canned fruits, canned salmon and dry and vegetarian baked beans this past week. If we can do the same thing on either Sunday, May 24th, Wednesday, May 27th and/or Sunday, May 31st, we will continue to make a HUGE difference. The lessons it teaches our children are amongst the most important ones that they can learn from us.
Please be sure to check out the Class Updates this week, as they are your best ticket to seeing what is being covered in our classes and prompts discussions at home. These Class Updates also promote show the high emphasis we put on the learning/enjoyment process at SJS to your friends/families who are looking for a “cutting-edge” synagogue/congregational school for their child(ren)’s Jewish Education. Finally, Mazal Tov to Gabi Froum on becoming a Bat Mitzvah, as she will be called to the Torah this Shabbat. Mazal Tov to Gabrielle’s parents, Aryn and Ted Froum and to her brother Sammy and their entire family! Shabbat Shalom and Chag Sameach!
