School Chair’s Blog March/April 2016

Irma Penn School of Jewish Studies has had a full month featuring a delicious TuBishvat Seder organized and led by our talented teachers – Jennifer Lane and Eileen Curtis. Our Wednesday Hebrew class was thankful to have the talented Morah Naomi Pfeffer as a substitute teacher for two weeks.

The Sunday school will be hosting a Purim celebration on March 20 from 10:30 to 12:30. Some of our fun activities will include baking Hamantashen, face painting, singing with Cantor Len, and making groggers. Feel free to join us—bring your family and friends!

On Friday, April 15th Temple Shalom is proud to be hosting a PJ Shabbat Service.  Florencia Katz of PJ Library will be co-facilitating the service with Rabbi Karen from 5:30 pm.  One of the PJ library books will be featured with students of Irma Penn acting out the story. 

After this service, we will be planning a pizza party and a few fun activities for the students of Irma Penn so they will be able to participate in the 7:30 PM Shabbat service with Rabbi Karen and Cantor Len Udow.

We are all so proud of the students and staff of Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning and really look forward to seeing these young people on the bimah on April 15th at 5:30 PM & 7:30 PM.
