Name the K’tanim dinosaur!

Cindy MindellCommunity News

Our K’tanim students’ excitement for the first day of classes was heightened by the presence of an unexpected visitor. Straight from Jurassic Park, a very friendly Tyrannosaurus Rex showed up to greet students, staff, and cars passing by. He was very calm and even posed for pictures, some of which you can see below. In fact, News 12 Connecticut was here to document the visit and you can watch their segment here.
We are hoping that the dinosaur will make more visits to Beth El, but we need to make him feel welcome. He needs a name. We are looking for your help in naming this ferocious-but-friendly beast. Please send your name submissions to
A team of paleontologists will review the submissions and the winner will be announced on the first day of Rosh Hashanah. The winner will get a photo shoot with the dinosaur.
Good luck!
