Thank you to our Religious School Teachers, Madrichim, Teen Hebrew Tutors, baseCamp CIT’s, Teen Musicians and Friday night CITs – one of our teachers even won an award!
It has been a fantastic year of learning at Congregation Rodef Sholom Religious School and we have many people to thank. Below you will find a list of teachers, and teen volunteers who gave their time and talents to making our school a place that nurtures excellence in Jewish education. If you see any of them around the synagogue, feel free to say Kol HaK’vod/all honor to you for the best year yet.
We also are extremely proud to announce that our Midrasha Fire Circle teacher Day Schildkret is the winner of the prestigious Helen Diller Family Excellence in Jewish Education award in the Congregational and Community Schools category. The award carries with it a $10,000 prize for the educator and $2,500 for the congregation! Here’s a link to a recent j weekly article about Day.
