Chag Sigd Sameach!

Perelman Jewish Day School
In second grade, we celebrated Sigd - a joyous holiday introduced to the modern Jewish world by Ethiopian Jews.   Students heard the tale of the heroic journey through the Sudan and gained an understanding of our varied and beautiful global  Jewish family.

Inspired by the article "Jerusalem- a city that makes all Israel friends", the students created the "Wall of Friendship" - in which they designed "Western Wall stones" with feelings, hopes and personal prayers.
