Not on Citi Bikes, but they were still the best volunteer deliveries ever! Thirteen stalwart teens arrived at Temple Israel on East 75th Street this past Sunday morning at the unreasonable hour of 10AM. Six-hundred elderly people would be receiving Yom Tov gift packages and they live in different NYC neighborhoods -- a service that DOROT provides several times a year, with the help of hundreds of volunteers, including some of our students!

The minhag of Ramaz is that we conduct teshuva assemblies on erev Shabbat Shuva. This past Friday, after tefillah, each grade performed the ceremony of hatarat nedarim, the annulment of vows. Following that each grade had a special teshuva derasha which explored the themes of teshuva, the yamim noraim and self-improvement....

He continued that identifying one's individual purpose and considering why Hashem put us on earth leads to a life of self-worth and fulfillment...

As is the custom during the period between Rosh HaShanah and Succot, our students have been involved in a variety of practices that help them self-reflect and consider how they can improve themselves in the year to come. One such event is Tashlich, literally meaning to send off, which is the practice of symbolically "sending off our sins." As water is known to be a cleansing source, it is customarily done by a body of water...

Ramaz is a school where students discover the best in themselves and in others, where they develop a lifelong love of learning, and where they use their gifts to make the world a better place.
