Educationally Speaking – May 2018

Maccabiah Fun For Everyone

Debi M. Rowe, MAJE, RJE, Director of Education and Programs

On March 18, the “Adom Family”, “Minyanim” and “Dodgers”, parents, teachers and Board of Education members spent a fabulous morning of team games, excitement and fun. Relays of all kinds, involving cotton balls, hula hoops, bagels, ping pong balls, and much more kept everyone involved and active.

Our Board of Education, led by Maccabiah Chair Annette Alpern, were “all hands on deck” planning and executing a truly memorable morning at Averill Park.

David Gibson, who grew up at TBE, joined us to give us a special taste of authenticity: David was a member of the 2017 USA Taekwondo team for the 20th Maccabiah Games in Israel, where he won a bronze medal.

Supporters of this great project donated over $1,000 to support our kids and this wonderful day. Many thanks to the photographers who contributed the photos below and the color photos on display in the hallway at TBE.
