Families Experience JKHA Open House Family Fun Day

Current and prospective families joined together to see and experience the difference at the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy’s Open House Family Fun Day. The morning was themed to highlight how JKHA makes a difference in the lives of others through a variety of chesed opportunities. In addition, programming highlighted how the school’s academic excellence makes a difference in the lives of each and every student. The building was filled with positive energy, enriching and inspiring learning activities and the bright smiling faces of children. The opportunity to give back and show hakarat hatov at the event was meaningful for current families, along with prospective families who joined from the school’s feeder communities as well as those from Brooklyn, Queens, Riverdale and the Upper West Side.

The morning started off with a Chesed Fair where children were able to give back and make a difference. They decorated Thanksgiving placemats for senior citizens, packed activity bags for hospitalized children and assembled toiletry bags for the homeless which will be distributed by the RKYHS Homeless Awareness Committee.

The Open House Family Fun Day event showcased the school’s inspiring academics and dedicated teachers. Children participated in interactive activities ranging from robotics and MakerSpace creations to ruach-filled Shabbat sing alongs, Hebrew language games and hands-on science experiments that conveyed the emphasis the school places on each child finding his or her own voice and reaching his or her full potential.

“There was a wonderful and magical sense of community conveyed at our Open House Family Fun Day,” commented Ms. Sandra Blank, director of admissions and community relations. “We are grateful that so many prospective families were there to see the warmth and energy of our JKHA family and experience the JKHA difference.”

In addition to gaining insight into the school, new families in attendance were excited to learn about the school’s innovative affordability and growth initiatives. JKHA invites those looking to learn more about the school or any of its initiatives to contact the school directly, by emailing Sandra Blank at [email protected].
