Snacks and Tzedakah
Please help us teach your child the important Jewish value of tzedakah [righteous giving] by having them bring in coins to put in their classroom tzedakah box every Sunday. Students in grades 3-7 are welcome to bring tzedakah on Tuesdays as well. Out of respect for Shabbat, we ask that you refrain from bringing tzedakah on Friday nights or Saturday mornings.
On Sunday morning the religious school will provide a kosher-dairy, healthy, nut-free snack for your children. We will make an effort to have snacks available that all of our students can eat. Just in case, if your child has food sensitivities or allergies please send a healthy, kosher-dairy or pareve, nut-free snack with them. We have students in our school with severe allergies. For this reason any snacks brought to school MUST be nut free.
On Tuesdays we will be providing a hardy pasta snack for all students and will also have a snack cart for purchasing snacks. Alternately, you are welcome to send a healthy, kosher-dairy or pareve, nut-free snack to school with your child.
Wednesday evenings Gesher will begin with dinner prepared by our dedicated volunteers. If you are able to help with cooking, please let the office know.
When we have school on Saturdays in January and February we will provide a light snack in the middle of the class session. We will then join the synagogue for a Kiddush-luncheon that all are invited to attend.
If your children have special dietary needs please be in touch with us so we can be sure that there are treats for everyone.
