Our 6th grade students spend a weekend of fun and Jewish learning at Camp Harlam in the Poconos with Rabbi Miller, Rabbi Bazeley, Cantor Ott, Heather Kibel, Lenny Haas, and Student Rabbi Adena Kemper.
It’s a time for students and staff to engage in serious text study, to create Jewish crafts, to sing, to socialize, and (hopefully) to go sledding (if it snows).
There will be a parent orientation on December 19, 2012 at 6:30pm where Rabbi Bazeley will go through the specifics of the weekend, as well as answer any questions you may have about the retreat.
As students near the time of the Bar/Bar Mitzvah ceremony, it is especially important that they become an integrated part of the Temple's Shabbat community.
To that end, it is our expectation that all children in the 5th and 6th grades, accompanied by their families will attend at least six of the designated Friday night Lilmod L'Aliyah services per year. The services are chosen specifically to provide a range of liturgy, musical styles, and life-cycle events, to enable children and their families to become comfortable and confident participants in our Temple's Shabbat worship traditions.
