I wanted to introduce myself to the students of Irma Penn School and their parents, as well as students and parents interested in joining the school. My name is Bryan Hyman and I am honoured to be the new Chair of the school. I have two school age children and my son, Carson, was a participant in the B’nai Mitzvah class with Eileen Curtis this past school year.
For those not familiar with the school, the Sunday morning program focuses on Jewish holidays and traditions, Jewish History and Bible study, Israeli culture and music and crafts. Wednesday after-school classes focus on Hebrew language learning and include reading, writing, comprehension, speaking and singing with the goal of having students reading from the Siddur with confidence. The B’nai Mitzvah class provides an introduction to the blessings and songs to be performed at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs and provides valuable lessons and insight to soon-to-be adults concerning Judaism in one’s daily life.
Classes will start in October and I will be in contact with parents of past students in the near future. The classes will be on Zoom until at least December 2020. Anyone with questions relating to the school or the classes offered may contact the office at 204-453-1625 or send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
