Note from PSJC Hebrew School Committee Chairs

The 2020/2021 Hebrew School year was certainly memorable!


While we missed seeing each other in person, it was wonderful that students were able to have a full year of Hebrew School. Students were even able to be together in person outdoors in the spring. We all missed some of our big in-person events, like the annual Purim Carnival, but we were able to have a great year by being creative!  The whole community enjoyed the Zoom Purim Party At The Palace. Our Mishloach Manot fundraiser happened via pick-up and delivery. The sixth grade Tzedakah Fair was able to be held in person by switching the date to May!

The Hebrew School Committee is ready for another great year. We are excited to welcome Karin Ulman as Co-Chair of the Hebrew School Committee. Karin, a parent of three post b’nai mitzvah children, will be using her expertise to help develop programming for our teens and tweens. One of our goals this year will be to focus on forging connections between parents and families. Last year we missed out on the opportunity to get to know each other at pick up and drop off.  We will make sure there are opportunities this year to meet, connect, and schmooze.

If you do not have a Hebrew School aged child, that doesn’t mean that you have to miss out on the fun! Anyone and everyone in the community is welcome to help support and volunteer with the Hebrew School! From volunteering to be a guest speaker in a classroom, to helping with the Purim Carnival, there are so many ways to get involved! Please email Dina Nadler-Serber at for more information on volunteering. We can always use extra hands! We hope to see you!
