Our Religious School Parents Association works with the Religious School teachers and staff and assists them in providing a high quality Jewish education for our young people, and also works to promote the Religious School and its activities to the greater community. Our members work with the Rabbi and teachers and assist with the planning and hosting of all Religious School holiday celebrations. Our monthly meetings are held on Sunday mornings from 9:00-10:00 a.m. All Religious School parents are encouraged to attend. See below for the schedule of our meetings.
RSPA President’s Message – July 2017
I hope everyone is enjoying a relaxing and fun filled summer so far. Our Religious School is currently on Summer Vacation, but plans are already underway for the 2017/18 academic year with classes set to begin in September. Registration information will be sent to all returning students via email later this summer; if you know of anyone who is interested in joining as a new student, please let me or the Temple office know and we will make sure that they receive all of the information they need to register.
Planning has also begun for our 2017/18 Adult Education Series, which will begin during the month of November. Thanks to David Zollman and Eileen Martin for their participation in selecting the topic for this year’s series which will center on the subject of what it means to be a Jew. If you have any thoughts about areas of this subject that you would like to see explored we would value your input– please contact Rabbi Mark through the Temple Office.
Finally, as of July 1st, there has been a bit of a change in my own status here at the Temple. After having been honored to serve as Temple Vice President this past year and as a member of the Board of Directors for the past several consecutive terms, I have decided to leave the Board due to professional and personal obligations. However, I will continue on as Chair of the Religious School Parents Association and have been asked by the Board to continue to help oversee other Educational programs at the Temple, including our Religious School, Adult Education and Preschool. I look forward to continuing to serve our Temple in this new capacity.
Enjoy your summer! Happy Fourth of July!!!
