From Rabbi David
This has been an exhausting year for all of us. Just the emotional rollercoaster of thinking we were past the pandemic this summer to now being right back in the thick of it, has been overwhelming.
And yet, I am so thankful. I am thankful for my health and my family's health. I am thankful to our teachers who go above and beyond every single day to care for, teach and, most importantly, LOVE your children.
I am thankful for all of you, our parents, grandparents and families for bearing with us, showing endless patience and understanding and supporting us as we navigated our way through this past year. (We will need some more of that patience in 2022 I imagine.)
Most of all, I'm thankful for your children. They are why I come to work each day. It really doesn't matter how bad things seem, one smile or hug from your children makes all of the pain and worry melt away. I've often said that the only two things I really care about are that your children know that they are safe and know that they are loved - and I believe they do.
Please God, let this coming year be one of health, strength and joy. Let us find the courage to face whatever obstacles come our way, the confidence to believe in ourselves and each other, and faith in God to support us when we are too weary to carry ourselves.
