HEBREW SCHOOL NEWS from Elisa Levy
In the spirit of the holiday season, the Hebrew school begins it’s 2nd annual Mitzvahthon later this week. To keep with the tradition of Tikkun Olam, kids will be collecting $1 mitzvahs for 18 days and have chosen The Cancer & Blood Disorders Center at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital in Miami and The Elephant Nature Park in Northern Thailand as organizations to bestow their funds upon. Please be sure to give to this very worthy cause and support the efforts of our Hebrew school students!

Classes are on Jewish History, Jewish Customs, Holiday Songs, and of course, learning to read, write and speak the Hebrew Alphabet and Language. The CBZ Learning Center objective is to make our classes instructive, participatory… and fun.
On Wednesday Nights Rabbi Dudai ‘s “ Judaism 101 “ class will meet in the Bernstein Library. Classes are conducted in an informal format, which is conducive to a lively exchange of ideas. The discussions are intellectually stimulating and instructive and open to all. The program includes:

- The meaning and practice of Holy Days
- Understanding the structure of Bible and Talmud
- Overview of Jewish History from Antiquity to Modern Times
