Corpus Christi Community Religious School  

Many of us spent our last Sunday session in April preparing for Passover.  Elisa Cox’s class made matzah rubbings and snacked on the real matzah.  Rikki Schimitchel’s class gathered parsley for the Congregational Seder and gave the garden a much-needed watering.  Laurie and Amanda McKinley helped students in Chelsea Eisenberg’s class make seder plates.  They also made charosis for their mini-seder.  Blind-folded students had to guess different foods that they tasted and then had to tell why that food was or was not eaten during Passover.  Students in Dave Ryan’s and Brian Honigbaum’s class spent some time in the computer lab. Did you ever wonder “What if Moses had facebook”? Check it out at www.aish.com/Passover.

I hope everyone enjoyed a seder with family and/or friends and had a HAPPY PASSOVER.

There is only one regular Sunday session in May on the 1st.  There is no class on Sunday, May 8th because of Mother’s Day.  (I hope students will enjoy a special time with their mothers and grandmothers on that day.)  Hebrew School will meet on May 5th ande May 12th.  Our End of Year Celebration will be on Sunday, May 15th, from 1:00 to 3:00, at the JCC.  I hope to see all students and their families there that day.



I hope you all had a wonderful Passover holiday.  It was great seeing many of you at 2nd Seder at CBI.  A million thanks to Phyllis Roseman and her hard-working helpers for a most delicious meal!  Our family had a special treat that evening because Nolan made the front page of The Caller Times the next morning!!!

Now that the Passover holiday is behind us, it's time to get ready for our next Family Shabbat Dinner.  Please save the date and mark your calendars for Friday, May 6th;  services at 6pm and dinner at 7pm.  Babysitting will be provided.

We had a beautiful turnout for our March Family Shabbat Dinner and hope you will all join the CBI family once again for an evening fun, friendship and an old-fashioned home-cooked meal as we welcome in the Sabbath together.

If you haven't experienced one of our Family Shabbat Dinners, you must come … no formal invitation required.  It's a great way to make new friends, see some old ones, and have a night off from cooking!  This will be our last dinner together as we take a break over the summer months.

I am happy we can go back to breaking BREAD together and see you on May 6th

Our next Tot Shabbat service will be on May 6th at 6:15pm Bring your vocal babies, wandering toddlers, inquisitive preschoolers, and vibrant grade-schoolers. This is a casual service where everyone is welcome!

We hope to see you there!
