Shalom Jewish Journeys Families

Here are a few reasons to enjoy your neighbor’s Christmas tree as you light your Chanukia this year.  Chanuka begins December 24.

Religious school will be on break beginning next week; we will resume Wednesday,  January 4, 2017.

This week at school:

*Family B’nai Mitvah class5:30 – 6:30 in the Rabbi’s office.
*We have to say shalom and good luck to Sammy (Gan) and Sarah (Kitah Bet) Moncarz.  The family is moving to the east coast for work and family.
*Tzdakah – We’ve really seen an increase in participation! Thanks! It’s a mitzvah to bring a little donation to class each week and another way to reinforce the values we are teaching this year.

Reminders:

*Bad weather? I’ll send an email and change the message on the CABI main phone. Generally, we’ll follow the Boise School District’s call.
*Lost and Found – Please check in the box in the foyer.  All items left after Wednesday night, December 14, will be donated to our clothing drive.

Parents of Teens: 

We are so lucky to have a new assistant teen advisor, Geoff Tamayo, who will be helping me work with CABITs.  Look for more from (and about) Geoff in January.
