For the past few weeks, we have included a “Look for the Helpers” section in our TIDBITS email newsletter. As we near the end of the school year, we turn our appreciation this week towards our teachers and madrichim, who have dedicated themselves to creating fun and memorable lessons all year. Our teachers haven’t stopped developing creative ways for our children to continue their learning online. It has been tough on all of us – parents, teachers and students of all ages. While parents and teachers miss daily routines and adult interaction, our children miss their friends and are anxious about a dangerous virus they can’t even see. How lucky we are to have such a dedicated group of educators to serve as the glue keeping us together during these tenuous times. Their efforts have brought a sense of normalcy and intrigue into our lives. At a time of many questions, our Jewish educators remind us of eternal truths and sacred beliefs, drawing us closer to God and to one another. We are blessed by all that they do and all that they are.
Be sure to check out our Shabbat TIDBITS on Friday, May 1 when we will shower our appreciation on teachers in music and prayer.
