CPT Jewlicious Learners

CPT Jewlicious students celebrated Tu B’Shevat in class Feb. 10th. Long before there was Earth Day, there was Tu B’Shevat, the holiday when Jewish people think about the earth and things that grow here.

We read a story about a man named Honi who met a man digging at the side of a road, planting a Carob tree for his children, just like his parents planted for him. The story explained that carob trees take seventy years to bear fruit. This story tells us that we must consider our children and grandchildren by taking care of the earth now for their future.

Rabbi Mintz led us in a Tu B’Shevat Seder where we tasted food representing the Seven Species and the calendar seasons….Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Each child took home an avocado pit to grow, first in water, then in soil.

Morah Bobbi led the children reading a rebus story about the holiday. We had a discussion about living with trees and their importance, along with animals and other plants in our eco-system. A puzzle was passed out to take home about the Teva (Nature) Triplets and showed children cleaning up parks, caring for animals,planting and giving water to living things. Morah Bobbi instructed the children how to make “Dirt Pudding” to eat with chocolate or vanilla pudding, cookie crumbs, gummy worms and pretzel sticks.

Before the children studied with Morah Iris and Cantor Marla, we planted wildflower seeds.

Dear Chevreh:
It has recently been brought to our attention that a scam e-mail is being sent to congregants of P’nai Tikvah.  The email address:

IS NOT an account of Rabbi Mintz’s, and the message begins with the subject line: SHALOM followed by:  
Good morning, how are you doing? I need a favor from you, email me as soon as you get this message.
This is a scam.  Please keep in mind that official CPT emails will come from our domain:
Do not respond to the email.  Please simply delete it. 
If you receive an email like that, please let us know, so we can investigate further.  If you have further questions, do not hesitate to contact us.

Kol Nidre – by Reb Jamie Hyams

Kol Nidre – by Reb Jamie Hyams

Last week on Rosh haShanah, I commented on the idea “May we be inscribed for a good year.” I explored the idea that in the coming year there will be things over which we will have no control, and other things whose outcome we can affect through our actions.
