Mah Hadash?  What's New?  A note from your Sabra Coordinator

Dear friends,

We are off to a wild and fun second semester.  We have had a rain delay, we are having an artist in residence, we have a lock down drill, and when we have small moment, we do  some Jewish learning and socializing too.  I wanted to thank everyone for their patience and affirm that while it is a  unique semester, it is part of our plan for this year.

Our committee is very appreciative of the flexibility and patience of our students.  As a sign our appreciation for our students, we plan on having an ice cream truck visit Sabra on April 3rd!   
What an amazing day at Sabra that we just had last Monday.  So wonderful to see all of the new teachers!  We have lots of things happening.

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Earne

  8. For the second semester we will be working with our synagogue artist in residence, Ilanit Shalev.  She will be guiding our community in the creation of a glass art piece that will hang in our new building.  The theme of the synagogue art project is "Am" or people.  We as a synagogue are exploring the different "ams" and applying it to how we see ourselves as a people at Beth Am.  Sabra students will be exploring "Am Yisrael."  All of our classes will have one meeting with our Education Director Cheri Elowitz where she will introduce the Am of the class and a second with Ilanit who will work with the students in creating a piece of glass work that will go in our Beit Midrash.  Below are the upcoming days and classes.  We will update two weeks in advance.
