We are Counting Down Until We See you Again!
A Note from Morah Melissa
My family and I at my daughter Emily's High School Graduation!
Welcome back! We cannot wait to hear the children in the building again. We have so many wonderful new enhancements in place to continue to make this program the best place to grow and honor each individual child on their Jewish journey. Our staff met this week, and they are busy making preparation to begin learning and exploring with your children. We even learned about the Pike Market and their FISH PHILOSOPHY. It says this simple: PLAY. BE THERE. MAKE THEIR DAY. CHOOSE YOUR ATTITUDE. You can watch a video about it here: http://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=youtube+fish+philosophy&FORM=VIRE1#view=detail&mid=C8065B30841885874C4EC8065B30841885874C4E. We hope that we can have a year of playful Jewish learning with your children, that we can be present with them, we can make their day, and that they will know that we adore being with them each and every day!
On another note, last week, I dropped my oldest off at college. I know some of you may have done this already too. Boy, that is the great parenting equalizer. They go away, our control over their choices, our knowledge of their daily ritual is all over. But, on the first Sunday away, my daughter called to tell me she had been to Hillel for bagels and decided to apply to go to Birthright on her Israel trip next summer. At that moment, I knew the ties to each other, the lessons and values I had given her remain strong. I hope we are helping you instill the same love of people and community in your children. Shanah Tovah u'metukah!
