My How Time Flies!

I hope that everyone had a lovely Mother’s Day and pampered all of the mothers in their lives! The afternoon turned out to be very beautiful!

I can’t believe we are already at the end of the school year. It really seems like just yesterday that we were beginning the year, meeting our teachers and getting to know new friends. For those of you who were able to join us for Teacher Appreciation Shabbat, you saw the wonderful people that we have at TOR who educate all of us, from the youngest, to the most mature. I hope you all take a moment to thank your child’s teacher. They love being here and we love having each and every one of them.

Just a few announcements to wrap up this year. I hope everyone has a wonderful summer.

I know many of our kids are going to sleep away camp this summer. For those who are not, but would like a Jewish summer day camp option, check out Camp Shelanu at B’nai Israel. They have five different sessions throughout the summer starting at the end of June and going through the end of July. It’s a great option to keep your kids busy this summer. Registration information and applications are available at
