עם ישראל -Am Yisrael - People of Israel/ Jewish people

Dear CDT Parents,

Last weekend we had a lot going on!

The nitzanim/gan havdallah was very sweet, as always. Stay tuned for photos of the evening, where you can see kiddos learning to braid like the havdallah candles, reading havdallah themed stories, and sharing the ritual. More » about 1/11/19 School Newsletter

Dear CDT Families,

Tonight is All Ages Shabbat! We hope you can join Rabbi Toba and your CDT friends for dinner and the musical and engaging service.

Dear CDT Families,

This Sunday morning at Sunday School we have our first ever CDT Members Meeting AT JCDS! We really hope that you will take advantage of this opportunity to hear about what is happening in the broader CDT community and participate in the conversation about what it means to be part of the Reconstructionist movement today. At this point you should have already received an evite to the members meeting. Please do RSVP so the organizers can anticipate snacks, seating and childcare coverage.
