Ruby Berkovic and Jennifer Opit

Hello Community,

We hope you have had a good week.

Father’s Day

Even though we can’t celebrate “together”, we have come up with a way to still celebrate Father’s Day as a community this weekend. A huge thank you to Justine Hofman, Jodie Gien and Jenny Nurick for their assistance in putting this all together.


P&F Meetings

P&F Meetings are held on the first Wednesday of each month at 7.00 pm on Zoom. Thank you to everyone who attended the meeting this week.

Mindfulness for Tough Times 

We have now finished the eight weeks of Mini-Mindfulness Sessions brought to you by Emanuel parent Jodie Gien, from Mindful Future Project. The amount of people who subscribed was amazing and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. We can’t thank Jodie enough for providing our community with this fantastic opportunity.

Weekend trivia (from last week) and answers

We broke from tradition last week and asked you a couple trivia questions instead of a brain teaser. Here are the answers:

Question 1: Which monarch officially made Valentine’s Day a holiday in 1537?
Answer: Henry VIII

Question 2: What is “cynophobia”?
Answer: Fear of dogs

We would like to wish all the fathers, grandfathers and special friends in our Emanuel Community a very happy Father’s Day and also we wish you all a good and sweet New Year!

Shana Tova U’metukah,

Jen and Ruby
