On June 6th, the first grade culminated their Judaic studies curriculum with the Siddur Ceremony. During the year they learned to read Hebrew using our "Tal Am" Hebrew Program and Siddurs. The students proudly performed songs and prayers for their families and friends, and then Mr. Smolen presented each student with their Siddurim. Afterwards, everyone gathered together for a delicious breakfast. Having reached this milestone, first grade students now participate with the rest of the elementary school for Tefilla. To these young scholars, we say Yeshar Koach (go from strength to strength,) and encourage them to keep passing on to others our traditions, heritage, and connections to Judaism and Israel.
