Happy Birthday to the Trees!

Tu B’Shevat, the New Year or birthday of the trees, is just a week away and students at Torah Center have been very busy this week getting ready while also focusing on lots of other things that they love to learn about.

Mrs. Schlesingers’ 6th Graders have been spending the year learning about Israel through special technology-based lessons and others that focus on the environment.

In the cooking elective in Jewish High School on Monday, Ms. Freed’s class made a beautiful Jewish breakfast with homemade gravlax, cucumber sauce, egg salad and freshly squeezed orange juice.


The 1st Grade read some stories in Mrs. Schorr’s class about Tu B’Shevat

The 3rd grade is getting ready for their class Shabbat service this Friday night with a practice in the Sanctuary on Wednesday and special projects in the Art Room.

Kindergarten students spent time with Mrs. Altschul listening to a story in the Library.

And members of lots of different grades have begun to practice after school hours for the Purim Shpiel!  Details coming in the coming weeks.  This will be another “Don’t miss” event!!

This Friday, February 3rd is our next Shabbat LaMishpacha Dinner and Family service! It is also our Jewish Disabilities Awareness Shabbat here at Temple. Please plan on joining us that evening! Please let Lori in the main office know if you are able to attend the dinner. The cost is $15 for adults, $5.50 for children under 14.
