A Glimpse of Shabbat at IRDS
When our families are asked why they love Ilan Ramon Day School, they overwhelmingly answer that above all else, they love our sense of community. Our magic, what sets our school apart, is that feeling that the children, parents, teachers and administration have for each other and for IRDS.
While we have so many amazing moments during our academic week, one very special one, one that everyone looks forward to is our Shabbat celebrations. Bringing our students, teachers, parents, and grandparents together for services and Kabbalat Shabbat leaves everyone with smiles on their faces and a sense of peace and happiness in their hearts.
When you are at Ilan Ramon Day School, you’re home! We pride ourselves on being the home away from home for our students and families. Hearing the kids sing together, seeing their excitement as they sit together in services, hear Shabbat stories that integrate Jewish values, join together to light Shabbas candles and bless the grape juice, watching our younger children march around with their stuffed Torahs and our older students pray from their own siddurs - these are the priceless moments. The moments that make our Community so special!
We wish our Ilan Day School Community Shabbat Shalom and we know that the Shabbat magic that happens each and every week at our school enhances your own family’s Shabbat observance.
