Dear Parents,

I hope this email finds you and yours well—both physically, emotionally, and mentally. Please know that if you need anything, even a listening ear, I am here as is your Oheb Shalom clergy.

I am happy to introduce Zeman @ Home! (Naming credit to Beth Hendler!)

The entire Zeman staff will be thinking of creative ways to engage your children over the next few weeks.  Here's what we have so far:

  • Wednesday Classes: As many of you already know our 3rd - 7th grade will be having small group video conference classes to continue with their Hebrew learning.
  • Sunday Classes: We will be taking a hybrid approach, offering both small group video conference classes on Sundays as well as at home projects and assignments. You will be getting a sign-up sheet for this in the coming days to find a 25-minute block of time for your child.
  • Community Games: We want our Zeman students to continue feeling connected to the community and we thought some silly games and contests might be the answer! Please check out this fun quiz, " Who Are You at Zeman School? " that Beth created on Buzzfeed.
  • We will also be offering multi-grade virtual gatherings for things like tefilah or shirah (song session).

We know this is a lot! As a first step to making things simple, we have tried to consolidate all digital things you might need into a Google Drive folder so you don't have to wonder where THAT email went (it's always that email).  This way you only have to remember one link... this one. Right now are only a few links to log onto the classes but teachers may also include other resources here.

Please know that everyone is experiencing this once in a lifetime event in a different way.  For some of you, this might be really overwhelming and the idea of putting more on your plate (like the Zeman School) is just simply too much.  We get it! Please feel no pressure and have your child join us if they can.

Warmly,
Gavin
