Let the Spring Holidays Begin!!

It sure hasn’t felt like Spring outside in Pittsburgh recently, but the Torah Center students certainly enjoyed celebrating the Jewish New Year of the Trees inside!!  Seders, art projects, story times and lots of activities in between marked the celebration of Tu B’Shevat all around our Torah Center!

Students in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd Grades heard Tu B’Shevat stories and pretended that they were trees.  They started out as little seeds in the ground…

and then grew…

and sprouted branches!

The 2nd Grade had their very own Seder in the Gym.

6th Grade made terrariums as part of their year-long study of the Israel environment

All students in Grades 3-6 participated in a Tu B’Shevat Seder in the Social Hall…

with beautiful decorations made by our students!

We certainly are getting ready for the weather in Pittsburgh to catch up with our “Spring Holiday” feeling inside the Torah Center!!

Coming Up:

  • Friday, March 2nd is our next Shabbat LaMishpacha Dinner and Family service featuring 6th Grade!
  • Join our Temple Emanuel family for a pizza party, costume parade and contest and, of course, to listen to our SPECIAL Megillah Spiel and the Megillah itself! The fun begins in the Temple Emanuel Social Hall on Wednesday, March 7th at 5:45pm.
