Happy secular new year! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season along with the kids’ break from school. Now that we have entered 2022, I had a few announcements. Unfortunately, the recent COVID spike has not spared our congregation. Because of the uncertainty surrounding the surge, the teachers and I regretfully decided to cancel the upcoming religious school session on January 9 for safety reasons. Currently, our schedule includes a break on the 16th and then resumes for the rest of the month on the 23rd and 30th. Although I know the 16th is part of a long weekend, would parents be interested in having a session that day since we will now not meet on the 9th? Please let me know your thoughts.
For those enrolled in the Hebrew School, I am pleased to announce we will resume our class on January 10 but it will be through Zoom rather than in-person for at least the next couple of weeks. I will send out the Zoom link on Monday.
Let us hope and pray that the recent surge will only last for a relatively short time (as happened in South Africa) and we can all see each other in-person again soon. Please let me know if you have any questions.
