What an Amazing Weekend!

On Friday, our young families joined together for a delicious Shabbat dinner, followed by a lively and interactive service. The evening included a special blessing under our beautiful new Tallit, decorated with the hand prints of our Torah Center students. Many thanks to Laura Young, Rikki Hommel and especially to Diane Holsinger for all of their hard work on this true labor of love!

Sunday morning we held our first ever COLOR WAR. It was a great morning filled with friendly competition through Hebrew games, scavenger hunts, Gaga and the like. But the coolest part? It was planned entirely by our madrichim (student aides). Yeshar Koach (kudos!) to them…especially the Captain of the day, Rebecca Schwartz. Looks like the makings of a new Torah Center tradition. Since it was a tie (really!) – rematch next year?!?!
