Shalom from our Hebrew School! Our children have been busy learning about the holidays, Hebrew language, and history of our people. We participated in a Sukkah hop that included two different homes and our Shul. During Hanukah we made Hanukah sugar cookies, and went to the Home Depot to make Menorot with children from the Chabad School.
Our students joined the choir to celebrate Hanukkah by making the hand motions for their songs. Our students have also been learning about Shabbat and its significance. We are looking forward to learning about Purim and Passover, and creating our own Passover play.
Classes are on Shabbat from 10-11 a.m. and on Sundays from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. We are ALWAYS welcoming new students to our school! Please contact Rachel Ludwig at 609-517-4823 for more information.
Jewish Community Expresses Solidarity with Pittsburgh.We are pained and horrified by the horrible attack on the Tree of Life Synagogue in Pittsburgh last Shabbat. We mourn the 11 holy souls who were so senselessly taken from our midst, and pray to G-d to provide strength and comfort to their shocked and grieving families. We further pray for a complete and speedy healing of the injured, of the survivors, and of all of those around the country and the world who were traumatized by this atrocity. Read More
