The theme of this year's Zimriyah, our 13th, was Peace. Students from nursery to middle school joined together to sing popular songs in Hebrew. Many were classic songs in Israel, which are also sung by Jewish people all over the world. While the Hebrew lyrics were often challenging for many of our students, they stepped up to the plate and sang with all their hearts. As we prepared for the Zimriyah, we talked about the meaning of the songs. Many of the lyrics contain Hebrew words which our students hear and use every day at school. The Zimriyah ended with the whole school singing a song which has become an anthem for peace: Salaam.
