A Time of Rejoicing

Sukkot is known as Z’man Simchateinu…a Time of Rejoicing…and indeed it was! Everyone had a great time visiting our outdoor sukkah – thank you to Ms. Freed for making it an awesome experience!

Our younger students also visited Mrs. Altschul in the Library… and had story time in a very special sukkah:


The smiles and laughter continued all week:

And then to end it all… our rousing celebration of Simchat Torah!  It started with a delicious spaghetti dinner. And then, amid much dancing and singing, we read the end of Deuteronomy, rolled the Torah all the way to the beginning and started over with the first verses of Genesis and the Creation story. We also welcomed our newest students to the Torah Center:
