A Message from Rabbi Eric

In just under a week (Thurs. 5/25), we will begin Shavuot, so Chag Sameach! At its core Shavuot is a celebration of receiving the Torah at Mount Sinai, the sweetness of the words of Torah and a time to reflect on how those words of Torah still have an incredible impact on our lives in 2023.

The upcoming week also marks the final week of our 2022-2023 school year. I hope you will

join us as we celebrate both this Sunday (5/21) and next Wednesday (5/24) – details can be

found below. I also want to take this time to say ‘todah rabbah’ to you. I cannot thank you

enough for making your family part of our Shir Ami Religious School family. I value our

conversations – from humorous to serious – in car line, the entryway outside of the sanctuary and anywhere we see each other in the community. I will miss seeing the smiling faces of your children each Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesday. In the classroom, at Tefillah/Song Session and during conversations we have in the hallways, they make me laugh, amaze me with their insight and energy, and give me great hope that our future as a Jewish people is very bright. They have truly made words of Torah part of their every day life, and, in my mind, this is of infinite value.

Have a wonderful summer and please stay in touch. I can be reached via phone/text

(856-359-5758) and/or email ( at any time. I look forward to hearing about your adventures and to having some with my family as well.
