Dear Parents,

It’s hard to believe that Kislev has already arrived!  Chanukah is rapidly approaching!!!

It is time to show our appreciation for all of the hard work and dedication our children’s teachers show our children each and every day of the school-year. As in years past, we are collecting $18 per child to provide each teacher with a gift of Chanukah Gelt.

Please send in the attached form and your check made out to The Hebrew Academy by Monday,

Thank You for your support of our wonderful teachers!
