This week in the Preschool we are learning about tzedaka. We are teaching the children that charity can be more than just giving money; we can give our time, clothing or food. To reinforce this important mitzvah we are asking all the families to participate in a food drive this week. Please send in one to two cans of food that we will pack up with the students THIS Friday and distribute to a local food bank.
Next PA Meeting: TUESDAY, June 4th - 8:15 - 9:15 a.m.

A “Second Passover” is instituted in response to the petition, “Why should we be deprived?” by a group of Jews who were unable to bring the Passover offering in its appointed time because they were ritually impure. G‑d instructs Moses on the procedures for Israel’s journeys and encampments in the desert, and the people journey in formation from Mount Sinai, where they had been camped for nearly a year.
The people are dissatisfied with their “bread from heaven” (the manna), and demand that Moses supply them with meat. Moses appoints 70 elders, to whom he imparts of his spirit, to assist him in the burden of governing the people. Miriam speaks negatively of Moses, and is punished with leprosy; Moses prays for her healing, and the entire community waits seven days for her recovery.
Real Life “What’s a Jew, Mama?” Every day brought new torment. Katya sat at her desk in the classroom, alone, isolated and shunned. She never cried, though. She didn’t cry when they chased her, or threw stones at her, or struck her with their backpacks.
Story The Chassid and the Fool at the Leipzig Fair “I don’t understand,” he complained. “You wanted to spend Shabbat with the rebbe, and you promised to hurry with your prayers. Now you’ve ruined all our chances of reaching Lubavitch on time!”
