Hello Everyone,

We hope all of you that “attended” Emanuel B’yachad last weekend enjoyed it as much as we did and that those who went back on campus this week have reintegrated well.

P&F general information

We thought now would be a good time to remind you of the role of the P&F for those of you looking to get more involved when restrictions have eased!

The role of the P&F is to create a strong connection between the School and the Emanuel families. Our focus is on “Friendraising”: fostering a strong sense of community.

That being said, all of our events are fundraisers, so we do hope to make money, all of which goes to that year’s P&F fundraising initiative. Over the past two years, money raised has gone towards a beautiful new play space in the Adler Courtyard.

There are many different ways to get involved and in a variety of capacities. There are events throughout the year, and we put out a callout before all of those looking for helpers. Also, we are always looking for people to join the P&F Committee. Everyone is welcome!

We have a P&F Meeting in the school boardroom (although it’s currently on Zoom due to restrictions) at 7.00 pm on the first Wednesday of each month and everyone who wants to is encouraged to join. The next meeting is on Wednesday 3 November 2021. If you would like to join us, please email Ruby Berkovic so we can send you the Agenda and Zoom details.

There are a number of P&F events throughout the school calendar (Purim, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, the camping trips and a major event/fundraiser as well as weekly things like challah distribution and Friday Chill Out) that we hope can resume in full force next year.

Please let us know if you would like to get involved!

Weekend Brain Teaser

Question: A man stands on one side of a river, his dog on the other. The man calls his dog, who immediately crosses the river without getting wet and without using a bridge or a boat. How did the dog do it?

We hope you have a great weekend and get lots of sleep in anticipation of the regular school routine resuming next week.

Jen and Ruby
