Together At Last!

Thursday, 7 July, 2022 - 11:13 am


After a summer spent in intense preparation, we are delighted to resume school in person in the TDS building!  In only one week, we have seen just how much it is possible to accomplish through Zoom teaching now that we we've had time to learn the technology.  We have seen the deep level of interactive learning that is possible in a socially-distant classroom.  And we have seen the delight that students and staff feel in working together, if not face to face, at least mask to mask.

Although we anticipate challenges this year, and even because of that, we have chosen this year to upgrade our Middle School curriculum.  Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade boys will add extra Gemara shiurim, and extra learning sessions three times a week with Rabbi Ceitlin.  Sixth, seventh, and eighth grade girls will delve into a deeper davening experience under the instruction of Morah Zisi Hoffman.

Please note that next week, the middle school boys' afterschool and Sunday learning sessions will begin.  The boys will enjoy engaging, incentivized mishmar learning from 3:50--4:30.

Seventh and eighth grade boys will have their sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Sixth grade boys will meet on Mondays and Thursdays.  The middle school boys' program on Sunday, from 8:00-9:30 a.m., includes davening in a minyan and learning and is intended help foster the participants' growth and development.  We hope that fathers of middle school boys will also join in the minyan.

We are grateful to be able initiate these enhancement programs, and pray that through these and other efforts, the Alm-ghty will increase both scholarship and prayer in our community.

Shabbat Shalom
