Jewish Arts and Culture School and the Bar/Bat Mitzvah program will be starting up again soon. Here is some preliminary info:
The Bar/Bat Mitzvah program will begin after Labor Day on Sept 3rd. Please let me know what day and time you want to come. Please let me know if you have friends who would like to know more about the program. We are asking all of this year's grads to do something together for RH and YK at our services. More about this in another email.
JACTS will start the 3rd week of Sept. Again, please be in touch with me. If we have the demand, we will again have a class for the older and younger kids on Sunday and a class of the older kids on Wed. with Avram and Sara. Let me know your desires on these classes also.
Avram and I are doing High Holidays this year in El Cerrito with a group we are calling "Team Shechinah." We have a wonderful group of people working with us. The services will be in El Cerrito at the EC Veteran's Center.
We need to know in the next few weeks if you and your family would like to join us as the capacity is limited. There will be childcare, but we will have very child friendly services.
We will need reservations for childcare so we will know how many to prepare for.
We welcome anyone who would like to work with the team to create the services.
Rabbi Sara Shendelman
