Sukkot Family Program Recap

On Sunday, October 8, Preschool and Religious School families enjoyed lunch, singing and crafts in the Sukkah. The families learned the significance of the lulav and etrog and participated in the lulav ceremony (shaking it in all directions!). Fortunately, the weather held up and we were able to eat lunch in the sukkah and play outside on the playground. Thank you to Rabbi Bass and Will Rivlin for leading songs and prayers and thank you to Alexis Joyce and Laura Naide for planning the event.



Religious School: A New Year of Learning

Sunday, September 10 was the first day of Religious School for Congregation Etz Hayim. Our students, parents and staff prayed together and said a blessing for a new year of learning at our Family Minyan. The day was full of high energy, fun, and learning. Highlights included a Hebrew Through Movement session for our students in Grades Gan – 3, music pop-up classes, and the first session of Jews and Film for our 8th and 9th Graders. Thank you to everyone who helped make our first day a success!
