Celebrating the End of our School Year!

As we enter our final week of Religious School for the year, none of us could have imagined it would end this way. This also marks the end of my 25th year in Jewish education – a momentous milestone ending with the biggest challenge I have had to face in my career.
Since mid-March, our teachers have stepped up, from home, to continue our education program. I am very proud of them! We have continued our Hebrew learning, studied about Passover, and talked about our Jewish values. We have done some art programs and of course, we have provided a prayer experience every Sunday with Carl and me.
We do not know what next year will bring, but we will rise to the challenge to continue our outstanding program. We have learned a great deal and we will continue to learn throughout the summer.
Many of our students have expressed their desire to be back at CBI and in their classrooms. That is my wish too! But if it cannot happen, we will provide outstanding virtual learning experiences.
I also wish to thank the teens who served as madrichim this year. There will be a place for you next year as well and we will work together over the summer to make that happen.
On Sunday, May 17, at noon, we will gather for a virtual zoom end-of-year assembly. We will honor our teachers and madrichim, we will sing, and we will celebrate another year of Jewish learning. Please join us!
