On Wednesday, January 26 and Thursday, January 27, 2011 at 5:00 PM, there will be an important meeting of parents’ of students in the second grade who are interested in attending the Aleph class (third grade) of Temple B’nai Abraham’s Religious School in the Louis and Emily Slater Youth and Education Center.  This meeting is open to all parents interested in enrolling their 2nd grade child in an Aleph class for the 2011-12 school year, whether presently attending in the temple’s primary school or not currently attending primary school.
Registration procedures, an overview of the curriculum and school meeting days for the Aleph Class 2011-2012 will be discussed. Following this brief meeting, second grade Primary School students will present a play in celebration  of the holiday of  Tu B’ shevat entitled, “A Tree Grows in Petach Tiva.” 
Celebrated on fifteenth day of the Hebrew month of Shevat, Tu B’shevat is the birthday for all trees, “a New Year of the Trees”– A Jewish Arbor Day. In modern Israel, Tu B’shevat has become a national holiday, a tree-planting festival for Israelis and Jews throughout the world. It is customary to eat a great amount of fruit on Tu’ B’ Shevat particularly fruits that are grown in Israel including bokser(carob pods), oranges, avocados, banana, kiwi, dried plums , melons,  and dried apricots. In the cold winter season, Tu B’shevat gives us a chance to think about the arrival of spring and often in observance, plant a tree in honor or in memory of a loved one or a friend.
If you would like information regarding Temple B’nai Abraham’ Religious School programs, please call Janet Resnick, Religious School Director 973- 994-3950 or visit our website at
