“It was so fun to be back with my Religious school friends. I was excited to see Moreh Mitch too!" Jacob Cherry
Students recently returned to Midbar Kodesh Temple Religious School and many echoed the opinion of Jacob Cherry who said that "it was so fun to be back with my religious school friends!" Jacob, who spent part of his summer at Camp Alonim, also said that he was excited to see Moreh Mitch, referring to Mitch Karpp who returns to the religious school teaching staff and will work with 3 of the age groups. Moreh Mitch also teaches at Las Vegas High School as well as Mesivta Las Vegas. Karpp is joined by Sivan Gavish, Suzanne Greenberg and Daniella Mizrahi. Morah Sivan was recently named as Midbar Kodesh Temple's United Synagogue Youth group advisor, and Morah Suzanne works at the Early Childhood Center at Midbar Kodesh Temple each day. Morah Daniella recently joined the staff.
