    Religious School . . . education and enrichment
    May 2015

    It seems like only yesterday that the Anshai Torah Religious School year began with a fantastic concert by Rick Recht. As I reflect back on this year, I can say without hesitation this was a very successful and rewarding year for us at Congregation Anshai Torah. Our goal for the year was simple, to create a Jewish learning environment filled with excitement and celebration not only for the students but for the family as a whole. With your help, we achieved many of our goals which enabled our children to experience the richness of their Jewish heritage and develop within themselves a strong sense of Jewish identity. Thanks to so many people at Anshai Torah, our Religious School continues to provide a quality Jewish education for its students and as always, I need to thank our dedicated faculty who provide these positive Jewish experiences for your children.  

    One of the biggest challenges we undertook this year was moving our High School program to Sunday mornings. I am pleased to say that our High School has evolved into a full program offering, exciting classroom learning, hands on activities and several Tikun Olam projects. The high-light of our year were the two trips that our 8th and 10th – 12th graders took this year. It is no accident that Congregation Anshai Torah continues to provide quality Jewish educational experiences to all of its students.

    I want to thank Howard Rubin and the entire board for all of their support and encouragement this past year and to Rabbi Weinberg and Rabbi Kushnick for their dedication to the Jewish Education of our children. A special thank you to my Religious School Committee co-chairs, Kate Goldberg and Denise Levine. I know that I could not have done it without your dedication, support and assistance. Many thanks to all of my co-workers who were always there to lend a helping hand.

    As I said earlier the real success of our programs can be directly attributed to the dedication of our teachers. To all of our teachers, let me just say that I greatly appreciate your hard work, patience, and commitment to our students and to their Jewish education.  

    Last, but certainly not least, I want to thank the parents of Anshai Torah for allowing us the opportunity to be a part of your children’s Jewish education. I look forward to seeing all of our children and their parents in the fall.

    Our final day of Religious School is May 17th from 9:00 -10:30 am with Second Grade & Sixth Grade Graduation ceremonies and Teacher Appreciation. Parents are encouraged to attend with their children for our closing program.
