As Jews around the world usher in for the Jewish month of Elul with daily shofar blowing leading up to Rosh Hashanah, Hebrew Academy Early Childhood students received a visit from high school faculty member Rabbi Yitzchak Goodman.
Rabbi Goodman spoke to the children about the meaning of the shofar and the significance of the month of Elul, followed by blowing the shofar for the children.
In the days to follow Early Childhood students will hear the shofar being blown by Hebrew Academy upperclassmen. Daily shofar blowing (with the exception of Shabbat and the day before Rosh Hashanah) are a wake up call to remind Jews to do good deeds, pray and provide charity year round and especially during these days of repentance which last through Yom Kippur.
Other events to take place in the Early Childhood Department in preparation for both Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur will be a visit from the Shofar Factory, where students will make their very own real shofars, and the Honey Bee Factory, where children will see active bees in their hives, learn about the process of how bees make honey and are able to extract fresh honey from the hive and comb.
The Rabbi Alexander S. Gross Hebrew Academy serves students from six weeks of age through Grade 12 while inspiring and equipping students to reach their greatest potential academically and spiritually by focusing on their individual attributes and instilling eternal Torah values in a changing world.
For more information about these, and other, events at the Hebrew Academy please contact Ami Eskanos at (305) 532-6521 ext. 105 or at email@example.com.
