🌟 Our first week of camp was a splashing success! 🌟 Campers had a blast with cooking, sports, art, and drama. We closed out the week with our fabulous Camp Couture fashion show, and the threads were quite impressive. All of our campers enjoyed water play on the lily pads and everyone was all smiles in the sunshine. 🌞 We can't wait for more fun in the next 3 weeks!

Kol HaKavod to two individuals who are so special to our Epstein community. This week, Jack Halpern was honored with the Lifetime of Achievement Award and Melissa Silver was the recipient of the Marilyn Shubin Professional Staff Development Award during the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta Annual Meeting. Jack’s devotion to the health, progress, and success of the Atlanta Jewish community is endless. He is a thoughtful leader whose ideas create vision and purpose, and he is a volunteer who rolls his sleeves up to ensure the job gets done. Serving as a role model for his children and grandchildren, Jack’s commitment to Epstein is a fraction of the work he has done for our larger community. Whatever the need, Jack is always there to lend invaluable guidance and support. We are so fortunate to call Jack a lifetime member and leader of the Epstein community.

Along with Jack’s honor, the Federation awarded our own Melissa Silver, who teaches 8th grade history at Epstein and has recently accepted the position of K-8 Curriculum Coordinator in addition to her teaching responsibilities. Melissa is helping her students to think beyond themselves, to see the world as it is, and seek ways to better the world around them. She has implemented No Place for Hate at Epstein, a national initiative designed by the ADL to create a welcoming community committed to stopping all forms of bias and bullying. She teaches her students the history of the Holocaust culminating in a final eighth grade project where they research and design Holocaust memorials. Melissa is truly challenging minds, nurturing hearts, and making mensches every day at Epstein.

Mazel Tov to Jack and Melissa. We are so proud that you are part of our Epstein family, and we applaud you for your commitment to strengthening the Jewish Atlanta community.

M A Z E L T O V to the Epstein Class of 2024! Oh, what a night! Graduation was such a special moment for our eighth-grade families—and for our entire community. Celebrating the achievements and successes of our graduates is so meaningful; celebrating the wonderful people they are as individuals and as a group fills our hearts. We are so grateful to our speakers for the evening, including Epstein Board of Trustees President Alana Sonenshine, Marty Kogon on behalf of the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta (and grandfather to one of our 2024 graduates), and Rabbi Brad Levenberg of Temple Sinai (and father to one of our 2024 graduates). Your words and wishes for our students were so inspiring and will be remembered and treasured. And to our student speakers, Isabel Siegel and Liam Shemesh, you represented your classmates flawlessly. Your words were thoughtful, meaningful, inclusive, and so kind. Kol Hakavod to Middle School Principal Susanna Ames, Head of School Dr. D, and the Epstein faculty and staff who have guided this class as they have become the extraordinary young adults they are. We cannot wait to see their futures unfold! Mazel Tov to our newest Epstein alumni!

Epstein Vintage Eagles: Then and Now 🦅🎓 Meet Amelit Hall, a graduate from the Class of 2024!

As she prepares to spread her wings at Pace Academy in the fall, we extend our heartfelt mazel tov and wish her abundant success ahead!

Mazel Tov to Maya Friedberg on her in school Bat Mitzvah this morning! What a beautiful way to begin our last week of the school year. Maya led Tefilah for her family and classmates with grace and confidence. She chanted Torah with such ease, and she shared the message of her d’var, a message she clearly takes to heart, with conviction and deep understanding. As we participated in Tefilah, listened to Maya’s d’var, and heard Ms. Ames’ principal’s charge, we were given a true glimpse into the compassionate, caring, and thoughtful person Maya is. We learned about her mitzvah project, raising money for the canine unit of the IDF. We learned about the Shmitta in Israel, when there is no planting or harvesting every seven years. As Maya explained, even if you are not a farmer is Israel, you can use this practice to save your own resources—by planning for the future and taking care of those around you. We all send a hearty Mazel Tov to the Friedberg family on the occasion of Maya’s Bat Mitzvah. Kol Hakavod, Maya!

Mazel Tov to Marley Rattray on her in school Bat Mitzvah! Tefillah this morning had an air of family, a sense of community that enveloped the room. Marley chanted, led services, and delivered her d’var with poise, kindness, and grace well beyond her years. In her principal’s charge, Ms. Ames described Marley’s warmth and inclusivity among her friends and peers which is a direct parallel to the lessons of the parsha.

It was a day of celebration! The joy of Yom HaAtzmaut, Israel’s Day of Independence, was palpable in every corner of Epstein, today! Yet, in every joyous moment, there was a reminder of October 7th and the 133 people who are still captive. As we all stood together as a community and sang, Am Yisrael Chai, our thoughts drifted to the 133 souls we pray for every day. The flag was raised, we lit the torches to mark this day, and each time, together we recited U’le’tiferet Medinat Israel, For the glory of the state of Israel. Throughout the program, organic moments of dancing and singing erupted in the ECP-middle school crowd, with parents and grandparents joining in. While there is so much sorrow in our world right now, our children reminded us of how much joy there is in every day. We all left school today with so much to celebrate - having learned about unity, bravery, collaboration, shalom, determination, responsibility, friendship, and diligence... all in connection with the state of Israel. Todah Rabah to all of our teachers for a fabulous day at Epstein!
📸See your Epstein email for a link to our full gallery of photos from our day-long, school-wide Yom HaAtzmaut celebration.

We observe Yom HaZikaron today, the day we remember those who gave their lives in military service in Israel and those who have been victims of terrorism in the state of Israel. This year, Yom HaZikaron binds the Jewish people around the world, honoring the memories of soldiers and victims from decades of terrorism, like never before. The tragedy of October 7th and the months that have followed created a bond, one that connects all Jewish people. We stand together, remembering the sorrow and unspeakable pain the families of the fallen are enduring, and we stand hopeful, praying for peace for Israel and the Jewish people. . The people of Israel Live. Thank you to our extraordinary team of Epstein teachers, parents, Shinshinim Atlanta and students who participated in today’s ceremony. It was poignant, moving, and so meaningful to us all. And thank you to the Israel Consulate General of Israel to the Southeast, Anat Sultan-Dadon, for being with us today. Your words stayed in the room, even after the assembly, reminding us how important it is to stay connected to Israel, to stand up for ourselves and those in Israel, and to always be a light in a world with too much darkness.

Mazel Tov to Josh Petchenik on his in-school bar mitzvah this morning! This week’s parsha, Kedoshim, teaches us to be holy. The interpretation of the text takes on a few meanings, but Josh illustrated his perspective through his thoughtful d’var. He explained to us that he works to fulfill the directive to be holy every day – sharing kindness, respect, and fairness to everyone he encounters. Through his mitzvah projects and the way he interacts with his peers, teachers, and mentors, Josh exemplifies these character traits every day. One of Epstein’s shinshinim, Eran Holdengreber, delivered the principal’s charge for Susanna Ames. Eran and Josh developed a mentor-friendship on a school trip to D.C. earlier this year; Eran’s words today were filled with kavod and expressed precisely how Josh embodies the lessons of his parsha. It was a touching, meaningful bar mitzvah today. Mazel Tov again to Josh and his entire family. Shinshinim Atlanta
