New School Year Just Ahead

Welcome back students, parents and teachers!

Opening day is just around the corner. Religious studies begin at 10 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 10. Hebrew studies begin at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 14.

Parents, please complete and drop off your registration forms this week if you haven’t turned them in already. It’s important that we have updated information for every student, but even more important that we are prepared on opening day for your children’s arrival.

I’m excited to announce our 2016-17 teaching team: Tina Alcala-Sales and Andrea Novel Buck, 6th-7th grade religious studies; Susan Rees, 4th-5th grade religious studies; Elizabeth Kaplan, 1st-3rd grade religious studies; Linda Glaser, preschool/kindergarten religious studies; Danny Frank, music; Andrea Novel Buck, Hebrew Gimmel; Rabbi David Steinberg and Ben Yokel, Bar Mitzvah; Chris King and Ilana Yokel, substitutes; Maren Shamblott, teaching assistant.

Most of these talented and committed individuals taught last year, or in previous years. I look forward to continue helping them guide our children in their Jewish studies.

If you have any questions about our program, would like to volunteer to help, or want to late register a student, I can be reached by calling the Temple Office, 724-8857, or by e-mailing
