Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning is excited to be at the start of a new school year!  

Wednesday Hebrew classes are running from 4:30 to 6:30 starting September 16 and Sunday Judaic Studies classes (formerly known as "Sunday School") are from 10:30 AM to 12:30 starting September 27th.  These two dates will also serve as an Open House & Registration Day so please feel free to come in and meet the teachers and members of our School Board.  We are pleased to be welcoming back Eileen Curtis as our Hebrew School teacher on Wednesday and Jennifer Lane as our Sunday School teacher.

The Sunday School will be comprised of three tiers:  Prayer, Holidays & Customs and Bible Studies.  One exciting goal will be preparing students to confidently lead one of our Shabbat services in the Spring (see below).  

Wednesday’s Hebrew School class will be using an immersion approach to grow students’ Hebrew skills from the Aleph Bet to describing themselves and their communities. Students will also learn to read more confidently from the siddur.

PS:  Save the date!  April 15, 2016 the staff and students of Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning will be helping to lead the Shabbat Service in concert with our Rabbi Karen Soria & Cantor Len Udow.  This evening service will be kicked off with a PJ Library Family Shabbat for the first time at Temple Shalom.  See you there!
