- Religious School
What month is it anyway? Some days we aren’t even sure what day it is. Indeed, these uncertain times have warranted unprecedented patience and understanding. Where there is certainty is in the vibrant, strong, caring community of Wilshire Boulevard Temple. Since the early years of the Lincoln administration, this community has remained steadfast in bringing Jewish culture, traditions, values, and meaning to its congregants and the community. This is also true for our Religious School, and we are excited to announce that our 2020/2021 registration is coming soon!
During the pandemic, we continue to thrive and will finish out this school year strong through our final day, May 31.
Most of our Irmas Grade 6 students have completed their tallit project, which culminates with students and parents together tying the tzitzit onto the corners. The pandemic didn’t stop us. We sent home each tallit via USPS in mid-April, and along with Rabbi Eshel and our Irmas Campus art teacher Tracie Waco, students and parents “Zoomed” their way through completion of this beautiful project.
This coming fall, Religious School will resume. Of this, we are certain! What will it look like? Great question. There will be something for everyone, as we continue to learn so much during this pandemic about best practices, as well as opportunities for considering new education models. We are also certain of our commitment to all of you, and can promise that our school program will continue to grow, develop, and address the needs of our wonderful community. In the meantime, please know that Cathy, Rachel, and Rabbi Ashley will offer Hebrew boot camp over the summer for anyone who wants to brush up on their Hebrew skills. And, of course, until we can be together again in person, we are here for you today, tomorrow, and all the years to come.
