How to End Without Finishing

As I write this, knowing it will be May when you are reading it, I have no idea what the world will look like for you. Perhaps we are still each at home, checking in on one another through Zoom; perhaps you are reading this on your phone while eating out with 25 friends in a fun, newly-opened restaurant or at a concert with 5,000 other screaming fans.

What I do know is that as you read this, our Kol Rinah Education Hub (KoREH) will have finished its calendar year. For the last month and a half, our amazing, resourceful, caring, and passionate teachers and staff have been providing Hebrew activities, holiday learning content, deep dives into the world of prayers, and interactive media to parents and students all through our newly created online learning portal: Learning Together (https://www.kolrinahstl.org/koreh/learningtogether). There are not enough words of praise to do justice to the speed and dexterity with which our teachers and leaders responded in order to ensure that students and families could continue to learn together, even as we all began to refashion our lives amid the quarantine. They have done so much, too, by staying connected with families, by building virtual bridges from home to home, and by being role models to show our families that Jewish life, community, and even the Pesach seder can go on and can provide meaning no matter what else is going on in the outside world.

I want to reassure and remind families that we are planning on starting the new school 2020-2021 school year in August, and that if you have a student who is ready to learn, we would love to have them. You can sign up anytime through our website (https://www.kolrinahstl.org/koreh/registration). As always, please feel free to be in touch with me directly (rabbishafrin@kolrinahstl.org) if you have any questions about the incredible learning community we have built here at Kol Rinah. Stay safe and keep one another healthy!
