Shalom Families,
 
Daylight savings time ends Saturday night, remember to “FALL BACK (an hour).”  
 
November 2-3, 2018, we are responding with our greatest show of solidarity: a continental Solidarity Shabbat with the Jewish community of Pittsburgh. Throughout Greater Washington and around the country, we will gather across denominations to pray, to mourn, and to strengthen one another. We hope that every member of our community knows that they are part of a national response to the hatred and violence that has tried – and failed – to tear us apart. Join the congregation in prayer and encourage your child/ren to attend:
  • Junior Congregation for our 3rd-6th graders is Saturday at 10:30 am.
  • Kehilat Kids for K-2nd graders is also Saturday at 11:00 am.

*Sunday, November 11th No Class – Teacher Professional Day
 
If your 5th or 6th grader did not call in their Hebrew homework  by Wednesday, please have them do so.
Please help them practice, call the Google # sometime prior to Wednesday class, and bring their folders on Wednesdays.
 
Please remember to send your child with tzedakah money! At the end of the year the class will select and organization or two to allocate their funds.
 
Here is your weekly parsha video! Watch it together as a family this weekend 🙂
 
Wishing you and your family a Shabbat shalom,
