The students at HANC’s Samuel & Elizabeth Bass Golding Early Childhood Center and Elementary School in West Hempstead have been busy getting ready for Rosh Hashanah.
Students prepared by learning about the many mitzvos and traditions of the day, including the special tefillos that are said, blowing the shofar, giving tzedakah, dipping apples in honey, and wishing friends and family a “Shanah tovah.” Elementary School principal Rabbi Yaakov Sadigh starts off each day by blowing the shofar!
Students are very proud of their hard work on their many hands-on projects. Students painted with apples, made honey dishes and apple-themed napkin holders, wrote shanah tovah letters to their families, baked round challahs to take home, and tasted yummy apples dipped in honey.
The sixth-grade students were also treated to the Tzivos Hashemshofar factory. The students learned the halachos of what makes a kosher shofar and then each student was able to saw, sand, and blow their very own shofar!
A shanah tovah u’metukah from all at HANC.
