School Chair’s Blog Jan/Feb 2018

Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning participated in this year’s latke potluck with a charming reading of a Chanukah play and some songs. It was lovely to see so many families with young children at the Potluck and subsequent Shabbat service.

Sunday, December 17, we hosted a fun Chanukah party for our students, their friends and their families. Rabbi Tepper read a story and Cantor Len led participants in song. Gabrielle Doll led an art workshop in which participants made beautiful paintings of trees. Special thanks to Jennifer Lane, Sofia Gotfrid and Eileen Curtis for organizing everything for this event.

Irma Penn School wishes Morah Sofia well as she goes on maternity leave. We are very thankful to Arielle Goldman Smith for taking on the teaching of Kita Alef on Sunday.

Please note that classes start back Sunday, January 7 and Wednesday January 10.

As always, please feel free to direct any questions, comments and concerns to me. Enjoy the rest of Winter Break, stay warm and have a happy calendrical New Year!

Be well,

Marc Schaeffer
