Dear parents,

Thank you so much for supporting our students during their own religious school Shabbat. They did such a good job!  We are already in April, and that means that we only have one month of Hebrew and Religious school left. In April we will have our Religious school Passover Seder. Spending time with the students and teaching them more about Passover and the tradition is always so much fun. During our Seder the students will participate with the readings and blessings.       

We have our Greene Family Spring camp coming up.  This will be from Friday, April 12 until Sunday April 14.   If your child needs a ride, let us know. Greg Marks will take the students to Camp and will bring them back as well. Thank you, Greg, for taking care of our students!  More information about the departure time will be out soon.

Last month we introduce Ms. Odelia is the article. This month it is time to introduce our assistant teachers.  Our Religious school has a total of four assistant teachers. Eli Green, Elysheva Barrnet, Love Rios and Bella Klein.  The assistant teachers are there to support the teacher in the classroom, helping in preparing lesson plans and to have small discussions with the students about Jewish life.  All four assistants have worked their way up in being involved in the congregation. They attended a conference, they all completed last year’s conformation class, they attended different types of camps and much more to keep them involved in Judaism.

They are a true inspiration for our current students, and I hope that our students will learn from them about how important it is to keep Judaism in their (active) life because later in life they might be serving on the CBI board and being an involved member at a congregation.

If you would like to know more about the assistant teachers feel free to contact me.

Dear Sisterhood members,
Our Purim party was a great success. Thank you all for helping us. We had almost 100 members attending our party!

Last Sisterhood meeting we talked about the distribution of our Food Fest profits. I am happy to announce that we all agreed on giving the CBI $45,000 donation. We also talked about upgrading the kosher kitchen. We need more materials such as knives, plates, etc. We will invest up to $1000 to upgrade the kitchen. We also discussed our new officers on the board. Next meeting, we will make a final decision, but I can already announce that Carol Rehtmeyer will be the new president for the upcoming two years. Congratulations Carol!

For Passover our sisterhood shop purchased a couple of Passover items such as: Seder plates, Matzah covers, Matzah boxes. Etc.  The sisterhood shop will be open every Friday this month from 5 pm – 6 pm and Every Sunday from 9.00 am – 12.30 pm until Passover.
