High School Enters Shabbat with Minds on Hostages
High School Head Noam Silverman returned from a UJA Mission to Israel where among many things, he heard from Jonathan Polin and Rachel Goldberg, the parents of Hersh Goldberg-Polin, one of the hostages taken by Hamas. Noam relayed some of the stories they told, one being about Hersh's love for music and a memory they have of Hersh singing Acheinu at their Shabbat table with their arms around each other. Noam invited the High School community to sing the prayer with their arms around each other as a way of entering Shabbat with their minds on Hersh and the other hostages.
