Teacher-appreciation Shabbat: On Friday night, May 10th we honor our teachers! Between now and then, we ask that parents, children and congregants bring in letters of appreciation, thank you notes and cash donations to the temple office to be combined for teacher gifts. Please join us for this annual event.
Photography project: This trimester we are doing a community project on what holiness looks like to you through photography. Send photos in which you see God or feel surrounded by holiness to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Students can use the video prayer library to master prayers they're learning in Hebrew school. Watch over 50 videos of Cantor Sharlein following the Hebrew while reading & chanting prayers Temple Sholom style. Ask school staff for the student login.
Jewish Education at Temple Sholom is an effort among educators, parents and students to make Judaism part of who we are. We embrace making educated Jewish choices that add meaning and holiness to our lives.
