Family Education Days
We continue our successful
program of Family Education Days throughout our Torah School. Parents
are invited and encouraged to come to Torah School during the year to
study and to learn with their child(ren).
Each grade will
have one Family Education Program. During each Family Program, classes
will meet as usual; parents will participate in the varied and
stimulating educational experience their children are accustomed to,
and may have the opportunity to spend adult learning time with Debi
Rowe or Rabbi Briskin.
Please note the specific
dates for the Family Education Days for your family on the Torah School Calendar (available after July 1.) Family
Education Programs fill the entire school day, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Family Shabbat Dinners & Services
in the past, students of the Torah School will participate in an Erev
Shabbat Service and Dinner. Students will conduct part of the service,
or add to our worship in some meaningful way. Specific details and
information about each class’ participation will be sent home within
the month prior to the actual service.
On the 1st Friday of each month:
- 6:00 Family Shabbat Dinner
- 6:45 Family Shabbat Service, including birthday blessings for the children twelve and under and the "not ready for the bimah players" or a performance by our youth choir.
Friday Mornings from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
families with young children at TBE. Join families with preschool, or
pre-preschool aged children for a fun Shabbat experience. Each week has
a theme connected to a Jewish holiday or to the Torah portion of the
week. Make your own hallah, do some art, sing some songs and celebrate
Shabbat with your friends. Karen Briskin and Cantor Ilan Davidson
facilitate this program. Our activities are appropriate for children
ages 6 months to 5 years.
Volunteers Frankee and Marc Victor bring to us the book fair
featuring books from Scholastic Books. As always, these Scholastic Book
Fairs offer an excellent selection of award-winning and popular Jewish
and secular books for readers of all ages. Proceeds from the fairs
bring more books to our library. Volunteers are always needed for the
Book Fair. Please contact Debi Rowe if you are interested.
