Lower School Updates
For the first time in three years, Heschel welcomed back seniors from Project Ezra, a social service agency on the Lower East Side for older adults, to spend some time with our 5th grade students. The children and the seniors shared lunch and did some Purim singing together, and students sent their guests home with filled-to-the-brim mishloah manot! The students prepared by talking about the mitzvah וְהָדַרְתָּ פְּנֵי זָקֵן, it is important to respect older people; and brainstormed questions to ask the seniors.
Kitat Tavas celebrated receiving their siddurim (prayer books) at their Siddur Ceremony. It was beautiful and moving, and the students were simply spectacular! The ceremony was filled with spirit, song, and dance as the students brought their learning to life.
