Week of March 29, 2018
Eighth Grade Sendoff

Our Eighth Grade students will soon be embarking on their trip to Israel. In preparation for this most memorable occasion, Morah Aharoni prepared an uplifting Sendoff for her 8th grade students. The students recited various Tefillot and songs connected to the theme of Israel. The students also performed numerous Israeli dances and marched with the flag of Israel throughout the gym.

We thank our guest speaker Mr. Shahar Azani who shared his inspirational words and blessings to the students for a meaningful trip. 

We wish the students a safe trip and look forward to hearing about their exciting adventures upon their return.

Sixth Grade Chumash

Ms. Ben-Harari's sixth grade Chumash class has been studying Parashat Yitro and the monumental task Moshe had in judging all the Israelites. Yitro, Moshe's father-in-law, suggested that he appoint judges to help him advise the people. This became the foundation of the judicial system. Yesterday, we were very fortunate to have Mrs. Schulman visit the class and discuss the court system and how it parallels the system of judges Moshe established. We extend a special thanks to Mrs. Schulman for taking the time to come and speak with us.
Biur Chametz

On the evening before Passover a search is made in the home for Chametz which is then burned the morning after. On Thursday morning our students experienced the custom of Biur Chametz.

Students were also able to visit the firetruck!

Middle School Rabbi Round Robin

The students from our middle school had the opportunity to learn from some of our community rabbis at our annual Rabbi round robin. The students learned about the holiday of Passover and many fascinating aspects of the Haggadah.

We would like to thank Rabbi Wise, Rabbi Romano and Rabbi Herman for coming to our school and teaching our students.
