Religious School News Week of February 26, 2019

Last Friday, many of our religious school families enjoyed welcoming in Shabbat at MCJC with wonderful conversation, prayer and food. Thank you to all who came!

In the Classroom: On Sunday, the K-1 class began learning about Purim. Grades 2-3 started to wrap up their Shabbat unit. In addition, grade 3 is learning about Jewish kings, most recently King David. Grades 4-7 did some genealogy and continued making games for the Purim carnival. Hebrew studies continue for all.

This week: Wednesday, February 27 – Religious School for grades 3-7.  Sunday, March 3 – Religious School for all grades.
