Notes from Robin

Posted on September 10, 2020

Dear Religious School Families:

What a unique first week!  Thank you for your patience and encouragement as we rolled out our online program.  We ironed out a few wrinkles, and we are all getting used to this new way of teaching and learning.  Personally, I enjoyed seeing our kids’ faces on the screen, hearing about their summers, and listening to our classrooms come alive with Jewish content.


This Shabbat tefillah begins (9:15-9:45).  Rachel and Anna, our song leaders, can’t wait to sing and daven with you.  Their energy is contagious!  Start your weekend with Shabbat tunes and your TI community.  The links for these services are on the Shabbat tab in your Zoom links spreadsheet.


  • If you missed this week because life is crazy, we’ll see you on Shabbat.
  • If you had trouble with links, the spreadsheet, or anything else, please call 617-823-1312, and I can walk you through it.
  • If you have not already done so, please bookmark the spreadsheet, so it’s easily accessible anytime you need a link.


A loud and resounding shoutout to our teachers, aides, and madrichim.  I appreciate their inspiring lessons, providing tech support, and endless smiles.  Thank you!

I also want to thank the TI Board and Education Committee for their continuous support in ensuring that our online program is of the highest quality! Thank you!

OVER THE NEW FEW WEEKS, our focus’ will be reconnecting with each other, getting used to online classes’ norms, and of course, Rosh HaShanah Yom Kippur, Sukkot, and Simchat Torah.


  • Saturday Night, October 10: Family Improv with the Bible Players
  • Sunday, October 25: Apples & Honey Olympics with Ramah Sports Academy (better late than never!)
  • Sundays, November 8, 15, & December 13 & 20: We’re traveling to Israel (virtually) for a one of a kind experiential tour.

Shabbat Shalom,
