PTTS Hebrew School Chatham Square Cemetery Trip

Chatham Square Cemetery - 55 St. James Place

Sunday, May 21, 10:30AM - 11:30PM

 

This year, PTTS grades 5, 6, and 7 will be attending the synagogue's Annual Pre-Memorial Day Service: Honoring Veterans of the Revolution and Members of the Armed Forces.

 

Transportation for students and their parents or chaperones will be provided on an optional basis for $5 per person per way. Register here for transportation (registration is required.)  Otherwise, parents are required to make arrangements for their child to get to and from the cemetery (located at 55 St. James Place, opposite Chatham Square).  You may designate another adult to be responsible for your child.  Feel free to coordinate with other parents, as one adult may agree to supervise multiple children.  PTTS teachers will meet the students at the site. 

 

Please note: Jewish law prohibits male kohanim from entering a cemetery.  If your son is a kohen, he will be expected at PTTS that day and will join another class.  If you would like to learn more about this prohibition, please contact the clergy of Congregation Shearith Israel.
