School Chair’s Message Jan/Feb 2019

Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning has had a lovely first half of our school year!  Every time I walk past the classroom I always hear the young people learning and laughing together.  A big thank you goes out to Jennifer Lane, Marina Groisman and Maeve Boardman for the magic they have worked with our Sunday School class.  A huge thanks to Eileen Curtis and Adi Saitman for the quality Hebrew education on Wednesday after school.  We further appreciate Eileen’s leadership in Irma Penn School and a big MAZAL TOV to her on the birthday she celebrated this month!  We would also like to thank Morah Marina on her service these last few months as Morah Sofia Gotfrid will be returning to us from a year’s maternity leave in the New Year!

Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning celebrated Chanukah this month with games, song, crafts and food.  Their recital of the dreidel song was a delight to behold!  Please consider recommending Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning to any families with young children.  Feel free to recommend our Bagels & Blocks program for children four and under with their parents.  Contact Ruthie in the office for details!  Enjoy the rest of your winter holiday and a fun calendrical new year!

Be well,

Marc Schaeffer
