News From Ramaz
The 7th graders enjoyed a meaningful celebration of their classmates becoming bnei and bnot mitzvah. The students began by davening together as a grade. Rabbi Hagler addressed the students about the importance of reaching this age and Jeremy F. spoke about this week's parasha and how together they could take on the mitzvot and make an important impact. The students then enjoyed a delicious breakfast, sponsored and organized by Parents Council. At the breakfast, the students heard from their peer Sophie H. who spoke about their connection to the Tikva Children's Home in Odessa with whom we have begun a pen pal program. A memorable part of our celebration was when students Skyped with the students in Odessa. In an effort to share the simcha, our students sponsored a Bar/Bat Mitzvah party for them too!
Mazal tov to all!
