Today's News from Denise and Tammy

Dear Parents,

We know everyone is getting excited about Passover! We have kept the Seder information in today's email, just in case you missed it yesterday. Feel free to invite family members to either of our Seders. Below you will find links to all of our Seder songs that Morah Ronit has recorded for the children to learn at home. This will help them enjoy and participate in our virtual Seder, as well as your home Seder. Additionally, you may click on this hagaddah link to access our ECC Hagaddah. Please print at least one copy for your child in preparation for our virtual Seder. Additionally, feel free to print as many copies as you would like for your family. Your children will love coloring them and getting them ready for all to use.

Please reserve the following dates and times for your child's Zoom Seder with Rabbi Earne and Morah Ronit:
Nursery, Parpar & Tzipor Seder - Wednesday, 4/1 @ 10am
Gamal, Arieh & Gesher - Thursday, 4/2 @10am
* Please note that both Seders will use meeting ID 502 771 051
**Please note that individual class meetings will not take place on the day of your child's Seder.

Please join Rabbi Earne and your teachers for a shared LIVE Shabbat celebration through Zoom, scheduled for Friday at 10am. Please use the following Zoom login info:

Please keep safe and healthy and we look forward to being all together again soon!

Denise and Tammy
