Note the time of school services and dinner
Shalom Horim/Dear Parents:
Beginning in January will be our Friday night class services, one each month. Due to the now later hour of the service, 6:30, it makes greater sense to have the dinner priorto the service. Please note all dinners will begin at 5:30 followed by the service at 6:30.
Our first service is January 11, being co-led by our Kitah 6/7. Our Feb. service is on the 1st, led by our Kitah 4/5, and it is a Folk Service, as are all the following services (the Jan. service is not a Folk Service).
March 8th is our Kitah 2/3 service, and April 5th is our Kitah Gan/1 service.
Our December Saturday morning service was a great success. It was wonderful to see so many of you in attendance. Remember, we have another school service on March 16 at 9:30. For this service, in addition to student participation, we would also like parent participation. Take a look through the Saturday morning service and let me know if there are any prayers you and your child would like to co-lead. Additionally, let me know if any of you would like to chant Torah or Haftarah. Think about it and if I don't hear back from any of you, I'll be doing some asking after the New Year. It's a great way to model for your child that the service is not just for children. BTW, you can choose to read any of the prayers in Hebrew or English and we also encourage participation of non-Jewish parental units.
Before signing off, a special thanks to all of you who contributed to the Toy Drive. We sent two large boxes of toys, games, books, art materials, stuffed animals, etc. out to California. Also, a special todah rabbah to Kitah 4/5 for their successful bake sale, raising over $80 in one night to send to HIAS. Kol Hakavod!!
Reminder, no class next week for winter break. See you tomorrow!
