|Yahrzeit Candles for Yom Hashoah T'filah|
This year our speaker was Karen Barak who is the child and grandchild of Holocaust survivors. She told us what had happened to her family through pictures, song and story. It was a moving program which our older students and parents were engaged throughout the morning.
|Adam Teaching Hatikvah|
Tuesday May 16, on Yom Ha-atzmaout during Hebrew school we had a fun day of Israeli Dance, learning Hatikvah, and playing gaga a fun version of Israeli dodge ball. We ended the day with a delicious Israeli treat of Hummus and pita.
This weekend we have the opportunity to celebrate Israel Solidarity Day at Ravinia in Highland Park on Sunday April 28 which is also L'ag B'Omer. There are many great entertainment acts and I think it will be a fun afternoon, AFTER Religious School. Click here for more information: Israel Solidarity Day.
I love being a part of a bigger group and being part of Israel Solidarity day certainly does it for me. I think being a part of any teckes happening at your congregation, your city or your community. I love planning these ceremonies and being part of a teckes. As the Spring moves on I hope you take part in many ceremonies, Jewish, secular and family. Enjoy and I have a few more ceremonies that I will be blogging about shortly.
