Congregation kids do proud at the National Bible Contest

Hebrew School is back from the National Bible Contest again
with great success!

Our 13 students were amazing in Vancouver. In two days, all
wrote three exams applying themselves with seriousness and giving it their best.
We had three students in the finals, Zev Godfrey, Cate Brachman, and Zofia
Bookman
. After these three wrote an additional challenging exam, we learned
that Zofia had placed first and Cate, second. We are proud of their showing as we
know they had worked very hard on their own time.

 Between exams, the students had a great time jumping in
Extreme Air trampolines, swimming and playing in Watermania Wave Pool, spending
time in a wonderful park in Richmond, visiting Beth Israel Synagogue and
exploring the Jewish Community Centre. They also had a very enjoyable
celebratory dinner the last evening. It was really wonderful to see these
students building strong friendships, having lots of fun and reviewing Torah.

Thank you very much for supporting our children in this
beautiful endeavour. We are very proud of all of our students.
