This past month, our amazing fifth graders at the Stern and Forman Centers led our community’s joyous Simchat Torah events. Students, faculty and family were all part of the celebration. As the oldest students in school, fifth graders demonstrated incredible leadership and were spectacular role models for the younger grades, as they led the Torah readings.
After the traditional readings, our whole community participated in exuberant song and dance! It was wonderful to come together to learn and celebrate. Occasions like this are core to nurturing a love of learning and forging a connection to our Jewish customs and traditions.
