School News
DRRS: Things are really bustling at DRRS this winter. Magician Ben Cory, came at the end of December to do 2 shows for us for Chanukah. One show was for our younger DRRS students and our TOL friends and families and the second show was for our older DRRS students and the Post B’nei Mitzvah students and all the families. Levitating one of our older students was really exciting and fun!! Ben is the son of Terri and Stan Feinblum. (Click the button below to read more!)
