Thanks to the efforts of over 30 volunteers, approximately 650 guests enjoyed the program and classroom visits. Special VIP Day greetings were offered by President of the Board of Trustees Mark Stern, and Epstein Grandparent Merle Horwitz on behalf of the Annual Fund and Capital Campaign Grandparent Co-Chairs.
A group of second graders led the “Star Spangled Banner” and “Hatikvah.” The Epstein School Band also gave a wonderful performance, under the direction of Gale Scott.
After the program, the VIPs visited the classrooms and shared a special time with the students. Many worked on mitzvah projects, various Thanksgivukkah themed arts and crafts, sang Jewish songs, played games, shared stories and celebrated Shabbat together.
Epstein community pride was very evident as grandparents, great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, mothers, fathers, siblings and special friends gathered for this festive event.
