School Chair’s Message March/April 2019

Irma Penn School of Jewish Learning learners are already preparing for Purim!  This year our teachers have reached out to Beth Jacob Synagogue in Regina, Saskatchewan to have a communication partnership.  Our learners are starting by writing letters and Purim cards to send SNAIL MAIL to their new pen friends. This will be followed up by video conferencing between the two groups of young people.  I understand our learners are very excited to see their new pen friends.  It is our hope that we can find more and more ways to connect with this neighboring Jewish community.

Special thanks to Hadass Eviatar who made herself available to substitute for two Wednesday Hebrew classes this month.

IPSJL will be closed for March 24 for Spring Break and will return April 3rd and April 7th for Wednesday and Sunday respectively — which will hopefully FEEL LIKE SPRING!
