A Message from the Rabbi, May 2018


Dear Friends,

Our Religious School students have worked hard again this past year. On Friday, May 11th, at 7:30 p.m., we will have a Religious School service to crown all their efforts with well-deserved compliments and gifts. We will also recognize the tremendous help they received from different instructors. 

This year, the Religious School service will be different in that it will include Confirmation elements, led by Samuel Chenkin, who as you know celebrated his Bar Mitzvah a couple years ago. 

In addition to reciting prayers and reading the Torah portion, Samuel will lead a discussion for the congregation about the issue of gun control, which Samuel selected among the various "hot topics" the Behrman House Confirmation curriculum covers. We will have the younger children go downstairs before the discussion. 

Please come and support our students and root for Samuel as he reaches a major milestone in his life. 

Finally, on behalf of our Religious School, many thanks to you all for submitting so many Farm Fresh 

receipts and enabling us to receive wonderful arts and craft supplies that our students have enjoyed over the years and will continue to do so this coming year. 


Rabbi Severine Sokol
