Who to Call : Families Belong Together

Anyone else wonder why the Jewish community has said nothing about the immigration crisis on our southern border?

I've left messages with the Union of Reform Judaism (212-650-4000 / Loren Theodora) and the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism (212-533-7800 / Laurie Kamens)  I encourage you to call them as well. The more people they hear from, the better.

If you know of other organizations, or are affiliated w/ a synagogue or organization, please call them. This silence is shameful.

Never again.

Fwd: Marin Horizon Campus Project Update

---------- Forwarded message ---------
From: Lizzie Porter-Roth
Date: Fri, Jun 15, 2018, 1:27 PM
Subject: Marin Horizon Campus Project Update

Dear Neighbors,
With the Marin Horizon school year coming to a close and our students leaving for summer break, we want to provide you with an update on the campus project and application process.
As we have shared with many of you over the past few months, we have taken various steps to change the proposal from its original design. Over the course of many conversations, we have listened to thoughtful recommendations and suggestions with the goal of making the project better from a neighborhood standpoint. We hope to have demonstrated our responsiveness in the following ways:
·        Reducing the height and size of the new buildings
·        Changing our construction plans to keep project staging on campus (as opposed to Montford)
·        Increasing landscaping around the campus perimeter
·        Eliminating the commercial-size kitchen in the multi-purpose building
·        Introducing new exterior wall paint and roof materials
·        Making other design changes and reductions to reduce the project's scale
During this process, we have really appreciated everyone's contributions to ensure that our buildings reflect the character of Homestead Valley. For those who haven't seen the latest design plans, they are posted on our website here:
We are now in the process of re-submitting our application to the County and we anticipate having public meetings on the project in the near future. We also will be taking down the existing story poles in order to make way for new story poles that reflect the updated project. The new poles are likely to go up in August and we will share those exact dates when we know them.
Finally, as my term as Interim Head of School comes to an end on June 30, I will be officially passing the baton to our new, permanent Head of School, Bill Perrine. Bill comes to us from Littleton, Massachusetts, where he served as the Head of School at Oak Meadow School. Along with his wife and three children, Bill is returning to the Bay Area where he began his educational career and looks forward to joining the Homestead Valley neighborhood.
All of us are very excited to introduce Bill and his family to the Homestead Valley community in the coming weeks and months. He and the rest of the school leadership are committed to maintaining an open line of communication with each of you.
Thank you and please reach out if you have any questions.
Warm regards,
Cathy Hunter
Outgoing Interim Head of School
