Between visits to Target, reading friends’ Facebook posts (especially ones in Florida where school already began!) and the days becoming slightly shorter, there is no way avoiding the end of summer and jumping into the back-to-school season. It is an exciting time for teachers because they have a chance to set up fresh, clean classrooms, organize new supplies and lessons plans and prepare to welcome children and their families. In our Jewish tradition, we celebrate the fall holidays which also mark a time of renewal and new beginnings. As a temple, we are not only celebrating this meaningful time spiritually, but also with the introduction of our new cantorial soloist, Cantor Jacqueline Breines (read more about her). We are thrilled that Cantor Breines will be part of our preschool community and she is already planning her Shabbat party classroom visits! Please make sure to introduce yourself to Cantor Breines and welcome her into our wonderful preschool community!
