It was a short but festive and jam-packed week as Kindergarten through Grade 11 celebrated Chol Hamoed Sukkot B’simcha! The Sabbah family treated all Grade 6 boys to a scrumptious breakfast in the sukkah on Thursday, which included ruach-filled singing and inspiring divrei Torah (above).
All Elementary classes enjoyed eating in lunch in the Sukkah, and all eagerly participated in dynamic rounds of “Rock, Paper, Scissors” and “Dribble Tag”, among other fun activities.
Kol hakavod to the many students who honoured Chol Hamoed by arriving in their finest white shirts, and to the numerous boys and girls who also brought lulavim and etrogim to school!
Meanwhile, High School students had a blast on grade-level outings ranging from laser tag (below) and jet boating, to paintball and go-karting. After an amazing day, Grade 11 returned to school last night for Mincha and Arvit followed by a tasty dinner, engaging Torah-learning and soulful singing in the sukkah.
All grades were treated to a delicious grand breakfast this morning, followed by a viewing of the Unpacked film Israel Inside: How a Small Nation Makes a Big Difference and rounds of dodgeball, capped off with ice cream!
Yeshar koach to all of the faculty and staff who facilitated these two wonderful days, and to the following people for planning and coordinating such memorable events: Judaic Studies Director Galit Shushan and Dean of Students Kevin Fuks in Elementary, and School Rabbi Rabbi Eddie Shostak, Director of Student Activities and Athletics Yoni Lehrer, and Student Council Presidents Ben Safran and Shlomo Freundlich, in High School.
