The Religious School staff wishes all of our families a wonderful Thanksgiving celebration!

NO classes on Wednesday (11/22) or Sunday (11/26).  When we get back, we will begin to collect items for our Dec 17 Mitzvah Day.  All Tzedakah collected will go to JFCS’s new Holocaust Memorial Gallery, in hopes of expanding and supporting this extremely important new exhibit.

We will also be collecting items for the Max Block Food Bank, as well as making Hope Bags to distribute to Jacksonville’s homeless population.  Please begin to gather these items.

Stay tuned for more mitzvot that will be practiced on this very special day!

We did it!

Come rain…or wind…or nor’easter….?

Thanks to several brave parents, students, teachers, and madrichim, our JJC Goldman Sukkah got taken care of yesterday!  A special todah rabbah to Scoutmaster Allan A, Lane T, Ken S, Alec T, Elior L, and Ian G, who got soaked as the panels were taken down and brought inside for our students to safely decorate.  We can’t wait to enjoy the sukkah later this week!
