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

JKHA has been working to support families from Israel while they attempt to navigate and adjust to the new current reality wherever they are located. To help fill the day for families in Israel whose kids are now home from school, JKHA faculty has volunteered their time to lead Zoom sessions with English speaking school-aged children aged 5-10 in Israel. From the school in Livingston they have welcomed dozens of children on Zoom sessions this week. The school’s bnot sherut led the first session of the week, a Jewish trivia focused game show. Additional Zooms throughout the week included story time, art, gym class and parshat hashvua.

JKHA is proud to be able to have welcomed students who have temporarily relocated from Israel to the school’s area. To-date JKHA has welcomed 11 students from five families into the JKHA family. JKHA is grateful to its faculty who are seamlessly transitioning students to their classrooms, working together with families to ensure their children acclimate and have a smooth transition to the school and to the students during this trying time.

“Through these Zoom sessions we are hoping to provide even a small amount of relief to families in Israel and we are doing what we can for families who have suddenly relocated to New Jersey temporarily,” commented JKHA Principal Rabbi Aron Srolovitz. “We are all one, and truly ‘kol Yisrael areivim zeh lazeh, all Israel is responsible for one another.’”
