Linking Northern and Central NJ, Bronx, Manhattan, Westchester and CT

Rav Abraham Isaac Kook was the first Askenazi chief rabbi in Israel and was considered to be one of the fathers of Religious Zionism. This past Friday, BPY ES and MS students celebrated י״ט בכסלו (the 19th of Kislev) which was the day that HaRav Kook started his מסע המושבות (colonial journey). The students had the opportunity to learn in class all week through stories and games about his dedication to the mission of Zionism in Israel and out of Eretz Yisrael. The fifth grade students with the leadership of BPY’s rav beit hasefer, also learned his famous song בן אדם עלה למעלה עלה which is a phrase that each person can shine if you work to your potential. Aaron King, the proud uncle of BPY students, also shared the story of how his family was very close with Rav Kook and how he gave permission for his family to come to the USA in 1913 with a signed document.
