We hope that you all had a wonderful summer. Our School strives to provide a fundamental Jewish educational experience in a supportive environment that fosters a positive Jewish identity and pride in our shared culture and heritage.
The new school year begins right after Rosh Hashanah and we are looking forward to another wonderful year of learning, laughing, playing, studying, singing, praying, and building deep friendships. The Bible refers to Rosh Hashanah as Yom Ha-Zikaron (the day of remembrance), a day in which we are commanded to remember our past and be grateful for all that we have accomplished so far. Rosh Hashanah is indeed a time in which we set up new goals and plans for the new year, but it is also an opportunity for us to commemorate special times and events from our past.
As you reflect on the past year and prepare for the High Holy Days, waiting to fill up on apples & honey, please take a moment to plan your time and mark your calendars. September is a busy month! I would like to wish you all Shana Tovah Umetuka, A Good and Sweet Year, may this year be full of success, love, health, wealth and joy!
