Our community came together to enjoy the heartfelt and artful performance of our 4th graders in our פסח / Pesach play and to participate in our Learner's Seder filled with singing, eating, and prayer. We are thankful for the contributions of our families and proud of our students who continue to inspire us with their knowledge of Jewish tradition and joyful celebration of our shared heritage.
