Join us on Thursday, May 25 (5 Sivan) as we officially welcome the Torah, Survivor #1089, to Bernard Zell. The foundation for this year’s 8th grade Interdisciplinary Project, this Torah is one of only 1,564 Czech Torah scrolls to survive the Shoah (the Holocaust). This past November, we welcomed the Torah—on permanent loan—and introduced it to its proud, new guardians, the Class of 2023.
Please join us in saying todah (thank you) and goodbye to our wonderful Shinshinim, Lihi and Eitam, whose last day at school was yesterday. These two wonderful Israelis left their families and homes to spend the year with us. We are so thankful for all their contributions this year, as they aided in enriching the BZ experience for our students in contemporary Israeli culture, holidays and Hebrew language. Their beaming smiles and unmatched ruach (spirit), will be greatly missed!
