Enjoy this week's Ta Shma for Friday June 22nd, 2018.
Dear Beit Rabban Community,
These last weeks of the school year unfolded with intense emotions: pride in all our accomplishments as they were shared through culmination ceremonies and presentations; excitement about end of year field trips and Central Park sprinkler days; anticipation of summer vacation; angst about transitions; and sadness in saying goodbye to friends who are moving to Israel and other places that are not NYC. As Avi Steinberg, Kindergarten teacher extraordinaire, always reminds us... "it's normal to have many different feelings at once, you don't have to choose between them!"
As we take all these emotions with us into Shabbat, we wish our students summer vacations filled with new opportunities, joyful surprises and a ton of physical and emotional growth! To our parent body, thank you for entrusting us with your precious children. We cherish the honor of spending our days with them and facilitating their education in school. Finally, to our teachers and staff- you make the magic happen every day with unyielding commitment, boundless energy and keen wisdom. Enjoy your well deserved vacation!
Wishing all a restful and rejuvenating Shabbat and summer vacation,
