Dear MChY, Nitzanim, and Atid Parents,

We have two exciting announcements to share:

  • On January 1st, our 8th graders become MChY members. All second semester 8th graders can now attend the oldest youth group events. Please be on the lookout for more information to come to parents regarding the special transition traditions.
  • We are starting a new ALL Youth Group Monthly Havdalah program.  The first event is coming up on January 25, 2020. 

As you know, I’m still trying to find the best way to communicate with everyone to help with outreach for programs. If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Please sign up early for the events so I can plan accordingly.

Shabbat Shalom & Happy Hanukkah!
