RSPA President’s Message – October 2017

The Religious School year is moving along rapidly! Our students celebrated the holiday of Sukkot on October 8th and enjoyed our annual Sukkot breakfast courtesy of the Religious School Parents Association.  Many thanks to Cherie Rye, Jessica Wertlieb, Leora Dreyfuss, Mary Gurra and everyone else who helped with this event.  Our Junior Choir was featured at this year’s Pizza In The Hut Shabbat and assisted the Rabbi in leading the Service.  Planning is now underway for our Annual Hanukkah Celebration and Fundraising Performance which will take place on Sunday, December 17th.  Please mark your calendars and plan on joining us.  As they have for the past several years, the Rabbi and Robyn are working on an original musical specifically for this occasion, and without wanting to give too much away, I can tell you that this year’s performance will be based on a Broadway classic!  More information to follow in next month’s column.

Our 2017/18 Adult Education Series begins this month. Please join us on Tuesday, November 14th at 7:00 PM for the first class of this year’s series the subject of which will be  “What Does It Mean To Be A Jew?”  At our first class we will be focusing on the question of “Does It Take Ritual?”  These lively and thought provoking classes feature material specially prepared by Rabbi Mark as well as discussion among class members of varying  backgrounds and points of view.  Our classes will meet monthly through the month of March and are open to all Temple members as well as any other interested members of the community.  There is a suggested donation of $5 per class (or just $20 for the entire series of 5 classes).  We hope to see you there!
