The Addlestone Lions basketball team play a very important game this Thursday at Haut Gap school on Johns Island. The game starts at 7:30 PM. The school is near the corner of Maybank Highway and Main Rd. It would be great for parents and students to show up to cheer the team on. Admission is $2.00 for students and seniors and $3.00 for everyone else. If they win, they go into the playoffs. Go Lions!!!!!
My son just finished his first day. His first words were: "I just love this school". He was a little sad leaving and we had to reassure him that he will be back tomorrow.
Hi guys! Does anyone know which email we enter in the "recipient's email" box for the online ordering of the Benny's gift certificate?
I taught at AHA from 1979-1984. I would like to hear from past students. Who's out there?

Addlestone Hebrew Academy 1675 Wallenberg Blvd Charleston SC 29407 843-571-1105 Addlestone Hebrew Academy was founded in 1956 making it one of the oldest Jewish Day Schools in the country.

We are accredited by Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS) and National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) and serve children 18 months through 8th grade. Addlestone offers an exceptional education that enriches our students intellectually, emotionally, and spiritually. More than a comprehensive secular program - more than a thoughtful Judaic program: Addlestone is the best of both worlds. In addition to language arts, math, science and social studies, our students celebrate Jewish holidays and study Torah, Jewish history, and Hebrew language. Our challenging curriculum develops students not only to excel academically, but also to make positive choices in a complex society. In addition, we offer art, music (including keyboard instruction for 4th grade and up), computers, Second Step (social-skills program), physical education, and Spanish (6th grade and up). Small classes, outstanding teachers, and age-appropriate creative programming add to AHA's appeal. As a member of SCISA (South Carolina Independent School Association) Addlestone students are awarded winners in state and regional science fairs, math meets, and literary competitions. Our graduates attend the following high schools: The Academic Magnet, School of the Arts. Ashley Hall, Porter Gaud, James Island Charter and Jewish high schools out of state. In the past five years, our students have attended the following colleges and universities: Boston University, Brandeis, The Citadel, College of Charleston, Cornell, Emory, Harvard, Haverford, Stanford, University of Maryland, University of Pennsylvania, Wesleyan and Yeshiva University.

Today is Yom HaShoah, the day we remember the 6 million Jews who perished during the Holocaust.

Middle School students had a special remembrance ceremony this morning. They lit candles, said a special prayer, and three 7th grade students told the story of a member of their family who survived. May we all strive to honor the memory of the victims, celebrate the future of the Jewish people, and promise to never forget.

Mr. Joe Engel, a local Holocaust survivor, came to visit our daffodil garden after school recently. "Uncle Joe", as many of our students affectionately call him, sponsored the garden in memory of the 1.5 million children who perished during the Holocaust. We are so grateful to him for creating a beautiful place for our students to learn, think quietly, and reflect. 🌼

Silver Linings in the Dark Cloud of COVID

Dr. Fauci recently praised Israel as a model of what a unified country's effort to combat COVID can achieve in their vaccine roll-out. It feels like we are entering a transition period where, although we must not be lulled into a false sense of security and relax our COVID protocols such as social distancing and mask wearing especially during upcoming religious gathering times like Purim and Passover celebrations, the ever-increasing availability of vaccines behooves us to look towards the horizon of how best to start to emerge from our individual COVID cocoons and re-enter the communal atmosphere.

Today is the 7th day of Adar and is the anniversary of Moshe's birthday and Yahrtzeit. One of the values he taught was the key to a community's strength, is its level of unity and synergy. It was only when the individuals who made up the Jewish people emerged from the crucible of Egypt as a unified nation were they worthy of the revelation at Sinai. The Siddur says, "Etz chaim hee lamachazeekim bah - The Torah is a tree of life for those who remain attached to it." Rabbi Berel Wein explains that we are all like leaves on a tree and to the degree our individual leaf is connected to the tree, to that degree we will flourish individually.

Once a leaf detaches from the tree, it loses the vitality and nourishment of the tree as it slowly floats to the ground.
This week I was privileged to make a virtual presentation to a group of young people considering careers in Jewish education at the Azrieli School of Education titled "Silver Linings in the Dark COVID Cloud" (You can watch it below). I think one of the silver linings COVID has taught us is the limitations of what we can do on our own and the appreciation for belonging to a community. After a long absence from Shul, a recent vaccine recipient told me, "they never thought they would miss Shul so much." Tomorrow in Shul we read about remembering to combat Amalek, an enemy that tried to create division and splinter the Jewish people. They must have known that our unity is the secret to our strength and survival and therefore targeted that area of vulnerability.

At times like this, we can galvanize our community and transform it from a bunch of sandboxes into a beach. I am so hopeful and grateful that a group of local Rabbinic Synagogue leaders has joined together to present our Bnai Mitzvah age students at Addlestone with a combined gift from all the local Jewish congregations of a beautiful graphic novel Haggadah to use at this year's Passover Seder. Ultimately I hope you'll agree with me that the sum total of a Jewish community is greater than its individual parts.

Sometimes it feels like we are in the Divided States of America instead of the United States of America as the fabric of our nation frays in front of our eyes. The Jewish community can hopefully set an example for the rest of our country of how to remain unified while still respecting each others' differences.

Shabbat Shalom,
Rabbi Elisha Paul
Head of School
