Children in grades 1-5 were dancing and singing along to the African, Latin, Middle Eastern and Caribbean sounds of the wonderful all-women ensemble, Retumba. On Thursday, April 30, 2015, there were two amazing and energetic assemblies for the Lower School children.

April is National Poetry Month, and though Heschel was only in school for part of the month due to the Passover break, the school was buzzing with poetry! Poems sprung up in stairwells and on elevators. Students practiced "Random Acts of Poetry" by memorizing an Emily Dickinson poem and "carrying" it into unsuspecting classrooms to recite it. The celebration culminated in Poem in Your Pocket Day, when faculty and students all brought a favorite poem folded up in their pocket to share with classmates and friends.

The eighth grade returned from the Israel trip early Tuesday morning, and to borrow an Israeli expression, the students were "ayefim, ach merutzim" (tired, yet happy). It was an amazing experience that will, no doubt, have a long-term impact on our students, their connection to Israel, their bonds with each other, and their developing adult Jewish identities.

This past Thursday (April 23) we celebrated Yom Ha'atzmaut - Israel's 67th Birthday. The entire Heschel School was transformed into a sea of blue and white and the atrium was filled with Israeli music, Israeli flags and many excited children.
