On May 30th the first graders came together to celebrate the special occasion of receiving their first Siddur. The children celebrated by performing songs and presenting portions of what they learned about Shabbat and Tfilot. It was a truly joyous and wonderful occasion to see the first grade begin to partake in praying individually with their own Siddur. They did an amazing job and everyone was so proud to see their devotion and how far they have come in their Judaic studies. We thank all of those involved for making this day such a success.

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. Shulman 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. Shulman for taking the time to come and speak with us.
