SPECIAL FOR THE AJT //

Students at Greenfield Hebrew Academy stayed busy earlier this month, getting ready for Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.

There were special activities all through the school, from the Infant and Toddler Village through the Middle School.

First graders enjoyed making their own shofars at the Shofar Factory run by Rabbi Ari Karp, the Judaics teacher in GHA’s Middle School. Meanwhile, students in the elementary school constructed beautifully decorated New Year’s cards with the help of GHA’s new b’not sherut, their assistants from Israel.

The b’not sherut also opened a little post office for Middle School messages of thanks, appreciation, and apology to their classmates, and thank-you cards for the hardworking soldiers of the IDF.
