This Week at Rimon?

Temple Sholom - Sunday, November 16/23 Heshvan 5775

Family Meyuchad Day at JRA!

What a exciting and moving day close to 100 parents and students from Rimon spent the morning engaged in the mitzvah of ma'akhil r'evim, feeding the hungry. Traveling to JRA (Jewish Relief Agency) in northeast Philadelphia, our families joined together with over 1,200 people from the greater Philadephia area. Everyone took part in filling boxes with nutritious food for those less fortunate. After packing the boxes we traveled to a Federation Housing apartment building to deliver 100 boxes of food to the residents. Packing food, knocking on a resident's door and handing a person the box of food resulted meaningful connections between the act of collecting or packing food and the human face of the person who benefits from the mitzvah. Todah Rabah to all of our Rimon families!

NEW ACADEMY SEMESTER BEGINS!

It's hard to believe but the second trimester of our TS High ACADEMY began this past Monday. Our 7th grade teens will continue to explore the history and lessons of the Holocaust and modern Israel while the 10th grade teens will question, ponder and learn with Rabbi Rigler. The 8th and 9th graders will be engaged in their own voice and choice of learning about and creating public service campaigns for two social justice agencies -- Stop Hunger Now! and HIAS.
