    Sunday, May 1, 2016 - 9:30am to 11:00am

    We invite prospective parents to get to know our Sunday morning program. Join us at 9:30 am on Sunday May 1 for z’man rishon, where our religious school community comes together for an assembly that draws on the themes of a shacharit (morning) service. When the students go to class, there will be time to meet with the school director and hear about the outline of the program.  After that, a parent volunteer will take you on a tour of the school so you can see the learning in action! To sign up to participate, please contact our Director of Congregational Learning, Shahar Colt - dcl [at] dorsheitzedek.org (dcl [at] dorsheitzedek.org). We look forward to seeing you!
