So there I sat on this last Wednesday night, eating my dinner at Temple. As usual, which is always a special treat, kids from my last year’s class join some of the kids from this year’s class as we all eat dinner together.

Reflections on the 9th Grade Trip to the Big Apple!

Written by Debbie Massarano, Posted in Religious School


Upon landing in New York City last Friday, we dumped our bags at the hotel and Rabbi Brown, our 9th graders, and I headed directly to the “Top of the Rock” – the observation point on the top of Rockefeller Center. Rabbi Brown pointed out all the key places – Central Park, the upper West Side, the Empire State Building, the Lower East side, and Ellis Island and the Stature of Liberty.

We recognize this is a partnership between you, your family and our congregation and we cannot do this alone. We have created an educational program that supports our common Jewish values, builds community and connection, while also building skills and knowledge for all our students. To that end, we have carefully crafted family participation this year. We hope you will join us when you are able.
