Our student attendance awards went to Max Morris in grade 3, Aidan Quimby and Ariah Quimby in grade 4 and Amira Ahles in grade 7. Congratu-lations to you all! Students had a great time making some Israeli crafts, one to eat and one to take home!! And to make the morning complete, we feasted on Ronit’s delicious falafel lunch and Julie Spark’s magnificent cakes. Yes, two! Strawberry and chocolate, yum!!

Thanks to all parents who got their children here for class, who volunteered in any way during the year, who took part in the eScrip program (once again made about $600 this year!) and who donated to our Dermer and Garten Funds and giving of your time and energy in any way!!!

A shout out to our retiring youth group leaders, Nanci Soriano and Lauren Lamont! They have done so much for the youth of our congregation. Thank you so much!!
We’d also like to say thanks to David Quimby for tak-ing on his new role of building and grounds keeping our building safe and sound.

On another note, we hope to add a tot and parent class next school year! In order to do that we need a minimum of 4-5 children so please, if you know of anyone with little ones who might want to commit to a once a month little slice of Jewishness with us for maybe an hour, please let us know!
Have a great summer.

Till next time, Shalom.
