Last night, Devorah Heitner, an expert on young people’s relationship with digital media and technology, spoke to a group of parents at Beth El. Dr. Heitner is the author of Screenwise: Helping Kids Thrive (and Survive) in Their Digital World and founder of Raising Digital Natives.
In preparation for Purim, Cohen Religious School students learned how to bake Hamentashen. In groups of 10 at a time, students came to the Beth El kitchen to get a hands-on baking lesson from Beth El Youth Director, Tovah Goodman. Cookies were baked and packaged for delivery during Purim (March 1st). Don’t worry, the students got to try their creations just to make sure they passed “quality control.” Don’t be surprised if your student wants to try making them at home!
On Tuesday, February 13, the Beth El Pre-School held its annual “Shema Pajama Party” in the Blumberg. Over 120 people enjoyed a pizza dinner, pillow decorating, (finished by inserting a copy of the shema into the pillowcase) and a special story time with Paddy Lynn, who facilitated an interactive version of Stone Soup. Jammies, blankies, and slippers made for an extra fun night! Special thanks to Carol Ring and Leslie Hirschfeld for chairing the event.
