Silverstein Hebrew Academy pre-school and third grade students celebrated Rosh Hashanah in November by engaging in an interactive educational experience to learn about the customs and traditions of the Jewish New Year.
Students learned about culturally significant and symbolic food including apples and honey, as well as how they are traditionally prepared. They also learned how to make and blow the Shofar, a traditional Judaic instrument made from a ram’s horn.
The Rosh Hashanah celebration was part of the Silverstein Hebrew Academy’s mission to provide a well-rounded education in Jewish cultural heritage in addition to its advanced secular education.
