October 14 - October 25, 2019
Shabbat Candle Lighting - 6:01 p.m
During the holiday of Sukkot , students had the opportunity to partake in activities in the sukkah . They learned about the reasons for sitting and eating in the sukkah and the numerous customs associated with the holiday. Many students even volunteered to say the blessing over the arba minim (the 4 species) and to shake them in the six directions.

Putting their building skills to the test, students had a delicious time creating edible sukkahs ...definitely not a Keto diet creation!
Students at the Promenade location were fortunate to welcome Jaime Reich from CJPAC, Canadian Jewish Political Affairs Committee, a national, multi-partisan organization. She spoke to students about the importance of voting and the various ways of engaging in the democratic process through volunteerism during federal, provincial, and municipal elections.
We hope everyone had a chance to cast their ballots during this election season!

Parshat Bereishit

The Blame Game
By: Adam Lieberman

While living in the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve were told by God that they can freely eat and enjoy everything the Garden had to offer. They just couldn't eat from the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Bad. A serpent came along and enticed Eve to eat fruit from this tree. After she ate from the tree, she gave some of its fruit to Adam. When God confronted Adam and Eve about their blatant disregard for His instructions.... 
"The man said, 'The woman whom you gave to be with me - she gave me of the tree, and I ate.' The woman said, 'The serpent deceived me, and I ate.' "

What is the life lesson here?
