November began with our annual Shop and Schmooze. The sanctuary was filled with many vendors, people shopping; eating snacks, socializing, and getting into the Chanukah spirit. The Education Committee ensured the success of this religious school fundraiser. A special thank you to Missi Shapiro, who organized our event, and to Norma Gonzales, Ali Gratz, Jennifer Jerauld, Barb Zack and Buddy Snyder for their time and help. Our 4th ? 7th graders led a meaningful Shabbat service on November 10, followed by a Kiddush luncheon sponsored by the parents. Our religious school Shabbatot (Shabbats) provide a joyful community, experience and help prepare our students for their B?nai Mitzvah ceremony. Our curriculum ranged from learning about Jewish values of generosity and kindness, saving the environment, and Torah study. Class activities included making a kindness mobile, grocery tote bags, and Torah commentary memes; all involved student engagement, hands-on, experiential learning. Our ISJL fellow, Carrie Bohn, will be here the weekend of December 7- 9. Carrie will be at our Shir Shabbat and leading Torah Study. Our religious school Chanukah celebration will be planned and implemented by Carrie. We welcome Carrie to Beth El and look forward to the bringing ISJL programs to our community.
