Every week someone in Ira's class gets to take the Shabbat box home from school. When it is finally his turn, he loses the box on the way home from school. He and his mother work together to create a new Shabbat box.
We will create our own Shabbat Box and learn about the items that will go into our boxes.

We will create our own tzedakah boxes and talk about different family customs and traditions.

The team bonded together and with 7 swimmers being able to return for the 2014 games we look forward to return in 2014, as more experienced and stronger swimmers. Katya enjoyed training the team this year and was excited by their enthusiasm and willingness to work hard. Check back soon for the medal results!
