There is never a dull moment here in the Torah Center. We have been quite busy these past few weeks!
Check it out!

The 6th graders have been learning about Hebrew calligraphy:
To get ready for Chanukah, once again our students participated in the annual MitzvahMall…an opportunity to make donations to important agencies and organizations in honor of our friends and relatives. This year we also decorated book marks and created games for books to be given to children who need them. Thank you to everyone who volunteered their time, made donations and helped to brighten a child’s day through participating in the Book Mitzvah project!
Cooking with Ms. Freed is always a blast – especially when it’s decorating cupcakes in a ‘Creation story’ theme. Can you tell what all of the decorations represent?

The 8th grade talked about Jewish values and created collages that showed what is important to them:
And 7th and 9th grade students enjoyed hanging out during the break:
It really has been a great month…looking forward to more to come!
A Very Happy Chanukah from the Torah Center!
