RSPA President’s Message – September 2017

Summer seems to have passed too quickly as it often does but as the seasons change and a new school year gets underway we are looking forward to a new year of Educational opportunities for our Temple members. Registration for the 2017/18 (5777-78) Religious School year is now underway and the first day of classroom instruction will be on Sunday September 10. Registration forms and information have been emailed to the families of all returning students and can be found on our Temple website here:

We are asking that parents print and complete all of the required forms (you will see a checklist indicating which forms need to be completed and returned on the distributed email) at home and then bring them along with your payment on the first day of instruction. Rabbi Sobel will welcome all of our students and their families in the Sanctuary at 9:00 AM  parents should plan on spending a little time completing the registration process and  meeting our faculty and staff on that first day.

We are currently looking for looking for new members for this year’s Religious School Parents Association. Our groups purpose is to promote the Religious School and its activities to the greater community, to assist with the planning and presentation of our Religious School holiday activities and to act as a forum for parental input. Our first meeting of the new school year will be held on Sunday, September 17th at 9:00 AM; our meetings are generally held on the second Sunday of each month during Religious School from 9:00-10:00 AM.  Everyone is welcome and is encouraged to attend!

Our 2017/18 Adult Education series will begin in November.  A meeting held last June to select a topic for this year’s series resulted in the decision to center this year’s classes around the topic of what it means to be a Jew. This lively and interactive 5-part series is taught by Rabbi Sobel and often is comprised of class members with varying religious and philosophical points of view.  Please make plans to join us, more details will follow shortly.
