Historical Program Sponsored by Temple Beth Sholom

Dear Friend:

Most of us recognize Kristallnacht as the Night of Broken Glass. It is the name given to the
evening of November 9, 1938 when Adolph Hitler and the German government he headed began
the process leading to their intended complete elimination of the nation’s Jewish population.
This terrible pogrom carried out by the Nazi Party’s paramilitary units, the Brown Shirts or SA
and the soon to be infamous black shirted SS, looted, smashed and destroyed Jewish shops,
schools, synagogues, homes and citizens in every corner of Germany.

This attack on its own citizens was no mere “spontaneous event” as the government tried to
portray it, but was a well organized assault. In addition to the physical destruction, deaths and
thousands of injuries, twenty thousand Jews were arrested and shipped to concentration camps
such as Dachau.

Kristallnacht represents but one act of the absolute evil that was Nazi Germany. We
commemorate it in the hope that such events and the hatred behind them will never happen
again. Regardless of one’s political leanings, it should be self evident that the events of
Kristallnacht, as well as recent events of extreme hatred and intolerance in our own country,
cannot be ignored. Good citizens at all ends of the political spectrum must pay attention and
speak up.

Temple Beth Sholom in Hull is sponsoring a special program to commemorate
Kristallnacht.  The program will be held on Thursday evening, November 9 at 7:00 PM in the Boyer
Auditorium, 600 Nantasket Avenue. Ms. Judith Tischler, a local Holocaust survivor and
lecturer, will lead a discussion of the events of Kristallnacht.

Please join us for this event and learning experience, appropriate for students in 7th through 12th grade, as we look to the memories of the past in order to build a better future.

For more information, contact the Temple office at 781-925-0091or templebethhull@comcast.net.

Student Meals

HAVE YOU CHECKED YOUR STUDENTS MEALS BALANCE TODAY??

My School Bucks
No student should have a negative meals balance - Keep your student’s meals account balance current by setting up on-line alerts when their account reaches $10.00 or below.  

You do not need to pay on-line to receive the alerts

It’s very easy – go to www.myschoolbucks.com to create your account.  Follow the prompts and be sure to add each student individually.  Choose to receive notifications by text message and/or email.  If the student’s birth date doesn’t work and you do not have access to ASPEN, call Patty Gardiner to get your students ID number. 

If you do choose to pay on-line, there are a couple of options – set up auto pay for a specific amount or pay on-line when you receive the alert.  The student will always have money available on their account. 

If you would rather not pay on-line, that’s fine too.  When you receive the low balance notification, send in cash or a check (payable to Hull Public Schools) with your student and they can pay the cashier in the cafeteria. It’s that easy!

If you think that your family may be eligible for free or reduced priced meals, please fill out the meals application and send it into school with your student.  A copy of the application can be printed from the Hull Public Schools website or you can pick up a copy in any school office.  You will receive a letter from the school regarding the decision within a week of submission.  If you don’t receive this letter, do not assume you are approved; contact your student’s school.  


If you have additional questions you may contact Patty Gardiner at HPS Administration, 781-925-4400  X1112.
