Rabbi-Educator's Message: December 2015

Rabbi Joe Eiduson
Joe Eiduson,

Consecration on December 4
Consecration will be held during our Shabbat Rishon service on Friday, December 4. Each student who has registered for consecration will receive a certificate and his or her very own mini-Torah.

Mazel Tov to the members of the consecration class of 2015/5776. You and your teachers have spent a great deal of time preparing for your consecration this month. We are so proud of you.

We are also pleased to be participating in the Union for Reform Judaism's camp promotion initiative this year. Each consecrant will be presented with a certificate for $200 towards a Jewish camping experience at Crane Lake, 6 Points Sci Tech, or Eisner Camp. We hope that many of our B'nai Shalom students will take advantage of this wonderful invitation to attend a Jewish summer camp. More information can be found at http://www.urjnecamps.org.
