RSPA President’s Message – April 2018
Our 2018 Religious School Purim Carnival was one of our best ever and featured 2 bounce houses, more games and prizes than ever before, plenty of hamantaschen, and both adults and children in costume. We were pleased that so many of our Temple Pre- School families were able to join us, as well. Many thanks to Temple Vice President Ken Watnick for once again providing pizza for our Carnival, to Bar/Bat Mitzvah student Olivia Goldstein who prepared the baked goods for our bake sale and to all of the members of our Parents Association who helped out with both the Carnival and with our Religious School Passover Seder which was held on March 18th. (See photo of Religious School’s Children’s Seder below.)
Our Adult Education Series “What Does It Mean To Be Jewish” concluded in March with our final class focusing on the question “Does It Take Being Open About Our Judaism?”. This year’s lively and thought provoking series was better attended than any in recent memory and the generous donations made by our students were able to raise much needed funds for our Congregation. Rabbi Mark is currently considering topics for next year’s series, if you have any suggestions feel free to contact him though the Temple Office.
