Our Religious School is off and running for 2024. The past few months have brought me so much joy, getting to know our students, families, and teachers. We are blessed to be a part of such a wonderful congregation.
Two of our primary goals in our Religious School are to instill within our students a sense of identity and pride in their Judaism and a sense of belonging to our TBE and Jewish community. Our experiential programming deepens the Jewish learning. On Sunday, March 4th, our students will be divided into teams to participate in an Israel Quest – learning about and exploring the land of Israel. We are fortunate to be bringing a group called Israel ScaVentures to TBE virtually – the game is a cross between a scavenger hunt and an adventure of discovery.
Over the next few months, we have several opportunities to join as a community and to strengthen our relationships. Friday, February 2nd is a Family Shabbat Service, followed by an Ice Cream Social. What better way to begin Shabbat than through song, prayer, community and of course, ice cream. I hope you will join us! Saturday, February 10th is a TBE family bowling event – watch your email for more information. And on Tuesday, February 27th, we will offer another Tuesday Night Family Dinner after Religious School. We hope you take advantage of many of these opportunities to be together as a Temple Beth El family.
We have so much to look forward to this spring!
