Opening Day Photos

February 25, 2021: We hope everyone had an enjoyable and relaxing President’s break. We are looking forward to getting back to Hebrew school once again this Sunday, February 28th at Hillcrest Jewish Center. In celebration of Purim, this Sunday will be filled with lots of fun activities for all of our students. We will be having a video program including a child friendly Megillah reading. Before break we made groggers so please remember to bring them to Hebrew school this Sunday so we can make lots of noise when we hear….HAMAN! 

Each child will receive delicious Hamentashen and juice as part of our Mishloach Manot package. Children are encouraged to come to Hebrew school in their Purim costumes. We can’t wait to see what you you will be dressed up as!

For those who have candy money for Passover, please remember to bring in your envelopes to Hebrew school this Sunday.

As a continued reminder, we will be conducting in person classes at Hillcrest Jewish Center.

In this week’s Torah portion, Parshat Yitro, we are introduced to the Aseret HaDibrot – the Ten Commandments given on Mount Sinai. Among the commandments is to honor your father and your mother. It is clear, based on the fact that this Mitzvah made the list of the Ten Commandments, how important the Torah considers it to honor ones parents. We can never forgot all the things our parents have done for us. By honoring our parents, we develop a stronger sense of appreciation and gratitude to others as well. Perhaps, this expression of appreciation can then be carried over to serving Hashem and appreciating the beautiful world He has created.
