Dear Faculty, Parents, and Students:
Thanks to the enormous efforts by a handful of people, we are arranging classes for Tuesday thru Thursday, soon to be forthcoming. Confirmations and/or updates will
אי"ה be sent each evening for the following morning and day. Please note that classes will start as early as 9:30 A.M. We hope to present an optional shiur for all students on Friday.
We believe that student productivity will be better assured through the high school having students be responsible for the material covered in these classes. Students who will later provide a note from home that they could not listen to the classes will be excused. Live classes will be recorded for those who are not able to listen at the time they are taking place.
The situation in which we find ourselves is challenging for all of us- to say the least. We hope that these high school learning efforts will be successful. (Please note that we have been advised that phone and internet systems may not be able to keep up with the current, unanticipated demand overload!)
The haftorah for Parshas Parah of last Shabbos describes how Hashem will ultimately replace our
לב אבן - heart of stone - with a
לב בשר, a softer heart of flesh. We are in no position to presume exactly why the
רבש''ע has challenged us with the current, unprecedented
צרה. But we can express the hope that it will impress upon all of mankind our utter frailty and vulnerability, thus enabling all to embrace a
"לב חדש" of humility and subservience to the
רבש''ע needed for the epoch of Moshiach. May Hashem look upon us all with grace and
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
The High School Administration
