Chabad Hebrew School
At Chabad Hebrew School we look forward to an exciting year with lots of additions to our already exciting curriculum.

Our Children’s Library will be opening after the holidays, and we hope to provide lots of great books with educational and Jewsih values for your children to enjoy.
Hebrew School begins this Sunday September 11.
Your children will receive a list of supplies, meet their teachers and do a special activity with their teachers.
Parents will receive the Parents Handbook and School Calendar for the year upon registration.

This Sunday—Learn to toot your own Horn!
Take a honeycake for Rosh Hashanah
Next Sunday–Johnny wanna an apple?
Guess what we are doing?
This Sunday marks ten years since the horrific events of September 11. It is a day to remember those who perished, and the many who lost their lives trying to save others. It is also a day to remember those who have lived with the pain of losing loved ones all these years.
While it is a day of sadness and memories, it is also a day that should propel us to action. Indeed, that is the Jewsih response to suffering. Ask not WHY (as that is known to the Almighty alone), but ask WHAT? What can I do as a result of this unspeakable tragedy to make the world a better place? What can I do so that a bit of light comes forth from this terrible darkness?
Take upon yourself to do a special Mitzvah, a good deed, that you may not have done otherwise. Give extra Tzedaka, light Shabbat Candles this Friday night, call someone who needs a lift–we have 613 to choose from!
Do it for the memory of those who perished on 9/11. Let us ensure that their deaths not be in vain.
Let a greater light come forth from the black darkness that clouds this day.
Let us fight evil with acts of goodness. Let us be kinder to one another. Let us take advantage of the great freedom afforded us in this country and live as active and proud Jews.
Light your candles this Friday night. These flames are more powerful than the flames that engulfed the world on of 9/11.
