School Chair’s Blog Sept/Oct 2016


I hope and trust that you had a wonderful Summer season so far and that you are enjoying the dog days of Summer.  

Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning is proud to introduce a new staff member for our Judaic studies program — Morah Sofia Gotfrid will be teaching Kita Alef on Sunday.  We are pleased to be welcoming back for another year Morah Jennifer Lane who will be teaching our Kita Bet class on Sunday and Morah Eileen Curtis will be teaching our Hebrew Program on Wednesday.  Our Hebrew School program starts Wednesday, September 14 and Sunday School starts Sunday, September 18.

After mailing out hundreds of pamphlets to Jewish families in Winnipeg we look forward to welcoming some new as well as returning students to our Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning this school year.

Last but not least we look forward to the continued invaluable teachings offered by Cantor Len Udow and we are excited to have Rabbi Bill Tepper visit our classes when he comes to lead our community.  

Please feel free to contact myself or the office with any questions anytime!  Here’s to a new and exciting school year!  L’chaim!

Be well,

Marc Schaeffer
