YOUTH DEPARTMENT NOTICES
SHABBAT GROUPS: In this week's parsha,
Parshat Vaera, Moshe and Aharon
follow the words of Hashem and approach Pharaoh requesting the departure of the
Jewish people from Egypt.
Pharaoh refuses to let them leave and as a result, Hashem brings the Ten
Plagues against the Egyptians with the intent of changing Pharaoh's mind. These
ten plagues were only some of the miracles performed in this Parsha. Previously, Moshe and Aharon
approached Pharaoh and Hashem made a miracle that Moshe's staff turned into a
snake. This week in Shul we will be handing out
chocolate covered pretzel rods and "gummy" snakes to all the children
that attend groups to convey this message of Nissim
in the Parsha. Hope to see you all there! Have a
great Shabbat and remember: "Hashem is always doing miracles right in
front of your eyes" just as we saw with Moshe in this week's Parsha.
CHILD LEARNING: PCL will take place this Saturday
night at 6:30 pm. You will want to be there! We hope to see you! We are looking
for sponsors as well as children to say Divrei Torah.
We thank the Eckman & Nagler families for their
season long sponsorship! If you want to sponsor for any simcha or a yahrzeit in future weeks. Don't hesitate! Send us an email at email@example.com.
