Yom Shlishi, 3 Tammuz 5777

Dear Families,

We are excited to begin a new year in Chavaya and at Temple Israel. The educators, clergy and I look forward to greeting familiar faces and welcoming new participants.

Since the introduction of our Chavaya model in 2012 we have truly become a place where our children feel at home in their Jewish education. Parents share that their children are coming home excited about a story they learned from the Torah or an activity that helped them connect to an upcoming holiday. Our children relate that Chavaya is similar to camp because they learn but they also have fun.

The purpose of Chavaya is for our participants to develop strong relationships with the Jewish community through the lens of prayer Hebrew, Bible stories, Shabbat and Holidays, Israel, Lifecycle, Jewish values and Jewish history. We seek to engage in Judaism through knowledge, action, spiritual encounters and community participation.

Your involvement in the Jewish education of your children is essential to our success. Please know that I maintain an open door policy and am always available by email or phone if you ever have questions, comments or concerns. We are all partners in your child’s Jewish education and partnerships work best with open lines of communication. I hope that through our mutual cooperation each child will thrive!

On behalf of the Chavaya team, we look forward to a year filled with learning, growing and making new friends.

B’chavod (with respect and friendship),

Rebecca Elkus-Ferst, Chavaya Director
