This Week at Rimon?

Temple Sholom - Sunday, December 7/15 Kislev 5775

It's December!

The Thanksgiving turkey is a fading memory as we dive into December. What an exciting month as we look forward to Hanukkah, the Festival of Lights!


Today, though, we returned our focus to our current unit, the Shmitah year. The Bonim, Chaverim and Olim groups continued to explore and examine all things Shmitah including the idea of rest...for ourselves and for the earth!


Today also was the LAST chugim session of this semester. What fun everyone had as they sang, danced and created. We all are looking forward to all new chugim sessions in January.

Fun With Fondant!

Our after-school "Fun with Fondant" class began today...and what fun it was! Under the direction of Hila Shiff from A Piece of Cake, participants learned how to make cupcake toppers! Everyone is so excited to see what's "baking" for the next class!

Call for Parent Volunteers!

On Sunday, December 14 Rimon will be participating in a "Holiday Connections" day as we explore the meaning, symbols and prayers of Hanukkah. Of course, no Jewish holiday can take place without appropriate food! Instead of our regular snack we will be enjoying potato latkes and soofganiyot (donuts). Both of these foods are fried in oil reminding us of the oil used to rededicate the Temple menorah.


IF you are available to help heat up latkes and plate our goodies we would love your help. The time needed is 10:30 am - 11:45. Please email Lori at glazeraze@gmail.com if you can help!
