On Thursday, December 25, HANC High School hosted a yom iyun for students and parents. In keeping with the theme of the school year, the focus of the day was the topic of kavod.
The morning began with teachers, students, and guests daveningShacharit, followed by a sumptuous breakfast. Teachers gave sessions on various topics of kavod, and students and their parents attended these interactive and informative sessions. The shiurim covered the topics of kavodShabbat, kavodha’briot, kavod beit knesset and seforim, and kavod atzmi, among others.
HANC was also privileged to hear noted author and lecturer Rabbi Paysach Krohn, who riveted the audience with fascinating stories and inspiring lessons on kibbud av va’eim and other aspects of kavod.
A highlight of the day’s program was the presentation of an inaugural monthly award to students who exemplify the quality of kavod. These students were selected by their teachers and recognized amidst cheers from their fellow students. They are freshman Zack Plutzer; sophomore Michal Kaufman; junior Rebecca Shamash; and senior Jacob Berman.
This program proved to be an outstanding success. Parents commented how much they enjoyed the program from beginning to end. They appreciated the fact that HANC provides such excellent opportunities for parents and their children to learn together in a positive way.
Thank you to the Moldovan, Daitch, Maryles, Katz, Ginsberg, Magori, Hill, and Levine families whose generous sponsorships were behind this day of learning.
