Rabbi Gross will lead a short Havdalah service* which will conclude with the passing of the Torah from each parent to their child. As each family holds the Torah, parents will have the opportunity to share their thoughts with their child. The ceremony will conclude with a brief and informative workshop on topics ranging from Hillel to Birthright trips. And no celebration organized by Sisterhood would be complete without food. We're having an Italian buffet dinner for the whole family. Al and Luise Samuels are adding to the festivities by providing gifts to our graduates.
